Today, any employee responsible for administering a company network, either as an engineer, administrator or web-master requires knowledge about all aspects of the company's system. As the majority of networks are run using a mixture of products, to specialise in just one area is no longer acceptable for support personnel.

  • Over 20 exercises to be completed in a simulated UNIX environment
  • Over 40 hints, additional notes and anecdotes from the author
  • A free UNIX simulator
  • Java runtime environment version 1.2.2-005
