UNIX/Linux, Networking and DNS Online Course
The Internet Society invites engineers from Africa to participate in an intensive online course titled “Introduction to Network Operations: UNIX/LINUX, Networking and DNS”
This course focuses on basic UNIX/Linux and Networking skills. It is intended for newcomers to UNIX/Linux and Networking. The course is practically oriented and guides the trainee step by step on how to setup a working UNIX/Linux server, connect it to the Internet and then run a Caching Domain Name System (DNS) server in a Virtualized environment.
The techniques covered in the course are applicable in real world environments to setup Internet-ready caching DNS servers. Trainees who complete the course will be awarded with a Certificate of Completion.
Trainees will also be provided a remote server to carry out the hands on parts of the course and the exercises.
