This tutorial will explain how you can use a GNU/Linux server to provide core network services to a small network of Windows, Mac OS, and Unix(ish) systems. The main types of service examined will be file sharing, printing, email, and knowledge management.
Many small companies have heterogeneous computer systems that they would like to work together, but they are put off by perceived complexity and cost, especially after talking to some vendors. This tutorial will show that a Free Software system on a GNU/Linux server can do the work of at least four proprietary servers for a fraction of the cost.
Outline: Basic network config: DHCP and DNS
Web apps for knowledge management
File and printer sharing
The tutorial is aimed at novice GNU/Linux system administrators, or anyone planning to add network services to a small company network.
