Linux administration requires you to manage multiple systems at once--no easy task. In this course, you'll learn all about networking with CentOS 7 Linux, from configuring IP addresses to implementing Virtual Private Networks.
There is more to Linux administration than managing a single system--you have to network many systems and protect these systems from the Internet. In this course, LFCS: Linux Networking, new system administrators like you will be equipped with the skills needed to integrate CentOS 7 into a networked environment. First, you will learn how to implement persistent configuration of the IP address, gateway, and DNS settings of your system. Next, you'll learn the skills required to implement firewalls on your CentOS 7 system. Finally, you’ll learn how to implement secure tunneling to create Virtual Private Networks. By the end of this course, you'll have the expertise you need to be able to network and secure multiple systems.

With the use of Linux on the increase you want a professional Linux certification that tests you on what you can do, not what you can read in a book. Both the Linux Foundation and Red Hat certifications are performance based where you are tested on a running system.
Without a Network your CentOS 7 host is about as useful as a mule without legs. So we better ensure that the mule is well equipment for 4 robust legs.
Some of the major topics that we will cover include:
Configuring basic network settings
Configuring routing and NAT routing
Adding VPN server to CentOS 7
By the end of this course you will be able to fully network your system in many different situations. You will be able to secure the system and network with VPNs and Firewalls as well as being versed in the standard network connectivity.
Before beginning the course you should have sat the LFCS: Linux Essentials course or have similar knowledge.
