    JALUG's Network Administrator's Course is a 6 to 8 month course. Classes are held on the first and third Sunday of each month from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

    Currently the course is free. JALUG is a non-profit organization. More importantly, we have been granted access a fully furnished lab in which to hold the classes. This has been a big factor in the success of the course.

    The course is designed to teach the skills required to set up and support mixed networks of Windows and Linux machines. We cover the network protocols used by both Linux and Windows. These include:

    TCP/IP and network addresses
    DNS - Windows and Linux implementations
    DHCP - Windows and Linux implementations
    LDAP - Directory services - OpenLDAP and Active Directory
    SMTP, POP, IMAP - Mail services - using Postfix as the example
    SSL - OpenSSL and Windows Certificate Services
    Firewalls
    Virtual machines - Virtualbox

    We cover a lot of material in a few months. You will need to do a lot of reading and practice on your own. We typically start with 10 - 15 people and end up with 5 - 7 at the end.

    If you do not spend time working on your own, you will be left behind. We schedule 2 weeks between classes for this. Most of the people who complete the course get jobs using Linux or start implementing Linux in their current organizations.

    Do not start the course unless you have the time to put into it.

    Two students from last year's class work at the same company. They have implemented Linux directory services and Linux instant messaging services at work. They are running a Windows 2003 network with Windows XP and Vista clients.

    The directory services server stores contact information including email addresses for staff and business partners. Staff query the Linux server using Outlook when they need to find someone's email address.

    They use OpenFire as the corporate instant messaging server. This is useful since they operate several locations that communicate over a WAN. The IM clients run on Windows and the IM server runs on Linux.

    This year's course started in April. The next one will start in March or April next year. PM me if you want to attend. We already have 2 network administrators registered for next year.

    It is worth the effort. You will acquire some real skills.

    One of the people who attended last year just changed jobs and increased his income. He is now in charge of a network. The first thing he did was to put in an open source firewall between the internet and the company's network.

    For some strange reason, they did not have one in place.

    Please send me a pm with your name, contact number and email.

    BTW, you really need to think about the name you are using. Not good.

    It seems as if they did not have one. There was no protection between their LAN and the internet. Very scary...

    I spoke with him recently. He implemented Pfsense as the firewall. He also implemented Pfsense's Snort module for intrusion detection.

    We should be wrapping up the current course next month. We started working on email servers last week. After learning Postfix the students will set up Microsoft Exchange for homework. We are testing their ability to take the general principles from Postfix and apply them to another environment.

    I have never tried setting up Exchange so it will be a learning experience for me as well.
