Windows Server 2008 is now a fully mature server operating system.
What began as Windows NT went through major transition
in Windows 2000 Server and Windows Server 2003 to become in
Windows Server 2008 a full-featured, fully capable server operating system.
The net result is a server operating system that is more reliable, easier
to install, and more scalable. It also has an excellent directory service, is
easier to manage, provides better security, and delivers exceptional web
Managing a Microsoft Windows Network Environment, a five-day instructorled
course, provides the knowledge required by Microsoft® Certified System
Administrators (MCSAs). While Microsoft Certified System Engineers
(MCSEs) are qualified to design and plan, deploy, manage, and troubleshoot
complex Windows system and network environments in medium to large
organizations, Network Administrators and Technical Support specialists
perform more limited duties on a smaller scale, such as on the department
Intrusion detection is not for the faint at heart. But, if you are a network administrator chances are you're under increasing pressure to ensure that mission-critical systems are safe--in fact impenetrable--from malicious code, buffer overflows, stealth port scans, SMB probes, OS fingerprinting attempts, CGI attacks, and other network intruders.
Managing Cisco Network Security, offers updated and revised information covering many of Cisco's security products that provide protection from threats, detection of network security incidents, measurement of vulnerability and policy compliance and management of security policy across an extended organization. These are the tools that network administrators have to mount defenses against threats.
Implementing and Managing Networks
Describe the elements and benefits of project management
Manage a network implementation project
Understand network management and the importance of baselining to assess a network’s health
Plan and follow regular hardware and software maintenance routines
Describe the steps involved in upgrading network hardware and software
A modern computer system that's not part of a network is even more of an anomaly today than it was when we published the first edition of this book in 1991. But however widespread networks have become, managing a network and getting it to perform well can still be a problem. Managing NFS and NIS, in a new edition based on Solaris 8, is a guide to two tools that are absolutely essential to distributed computing environments: the Network Filesystem (NFS) and the Network Information System (formerly called the "yellow pages" or YP).The Network Filesystem, developed by Sun Microsystems, is...
This module provides students with the knowledge and skills to publish
resources, including shared folders and printers, in Active Directory directory
service. Publishing resources makes it easier for users to locate resources on a
network, and provides secure and selective publication of network resources to
Upon completing this module, you will be able to:
Use the command-line interface to accurately determine network operational status and network performance
Manage operating system image files to maintain an accessible operating system file and according to best practices, given a network topology
Use Cisco IOS commands to manage device configuration files to reduce device downtime and according to best practices
Execute an add, move, or change so that the network functions in accordance with the new requirement, given a new network requirement...

Data networks developed as a result of business applications that were written for microcomputers. Businesses needed a solution that would successfully address the following three problems: How to avoid duplication of equipment and resources; how to communicate efficiently; how to set up and manage a network.
Orion Network Performance Monitor (Orion NPM) delivers comprehensive fault and network performance management that scales with rapid network growth and expands with your network monitoring needs, allowing you to collect and view availability and realtime and historical statistics directly from your web browser. While monitoring, collecting, and analyzing data from routers, switches, firewalls, servers, and any other SNMP-enabled devices, Orion NPM successfully offers you a simple-to-use, scalable network monitoring solution for IT professionals juggling any size network....
Welcome to the exciting world of Cisco certification! You have picked up this book because
you want something better; namely, a better job with more satisfaction. Rest assured that you
have made a good decision. Cisco certification can help you get your first networking job, or
more money and a promotion if you are already in the field.
Cisco certification can also improve your understanding of the internetworking of more
than just Cisco products: You will develop a complete understanding of networking and how
different network topologies work together to form a network.
OpenVPN is a powerful, open source SSL VPN application. It can secure site-to-site connections, WiFi and enterprise-scale remote connections. While being a full-featured VPN solution, OpenVPN is easy to use and does not suffer from the complexity that characterizes other IPSec VPN implementations. It uses the secure and stable TLS/SSL mechanisms for authentication and encryption. This book is an easy introduction to this popular VPN application.
Imagine that an important customer in your firm commissions you to complete a sophisticated
worldwide market study that will form the basis of a global expansion strategy. Or that you are
responsible for the development of the product which will determine your firm’s ability to go public. Or
you are in charge of handling the merger of your firm with another. Further imagine that in these
situations you receive a strict budget and a precise schedule. You are, as such, involved in a project—
and, moreover, you are involved in managing a project.
The key to a successful hierarchical network structure is proper IP address management. If addresses are assigned appropriately, it is possible to summarize routing information. TIP Each area used by OSPF or integrated IS-IS should have a contiguous set of network or subnet numbers assigned to it. The area border routers should summarize that set of addresses with an address mask. Summarization provides substantial benefits for your network.
Network management is the poor cousin of network design and implementation.
All too often it is treated as an inconvenience by equipment manufacturers, or
forgotten entirely. But the ability to manage network devices is fundamental to
their utility, and a successful and functional network can only be built from equipment
that can be easily managed and operated.
Management refers to the ability to confi gure, control, operate, and diagnose
equipment. Of course, no vendor ships devices that cannot be managed, but
typically each is operated and controlled in a different way.
