Featured Asset: Learning Path: Linux Sysadmin Basics

The Linux operating system is more relevant than ever, especially for distributed, secure systems. A significant advantage of Linux systems is that administrators can perform many tasks (e.g. updating software, back-ups) remotely and with ease, keeping network computers secure and up-to-date simultaneously. This Learning Path begins with the basics of installing, configuring and managing a Linux system. It then moves to DNS and TCP/IP, essential tools for network communication.  The course ends with how to secure your Linux system.
