Course Summary

The hands-on FreeBSD System Administration class covers the fundamentals of FreeBSD system administration, including: installation (i386), system services, installing software packages, configuring and building kernels, network configuration, and more. It also covers DNS, email, and web services. The students will implement DNS zones and Apache website virtual hosting in the lab.

This class is for users of Linux, Unix or BSD operating systems to provide beginning system administration skills for the popular FreeBSD operating system. Similarities and differences for many administration tasks under Linux and other BSDs will be discussed.

This class is designed for students who are new to FreeBSD administration. Although this course uses FreeBSD for its curriculum, most of the concepts are applicable for Linux, OpenBSD, BSD/OS, NetBSD, and Berkeley Unix administration. Some Unix, BSD, or Linux experience would be helpful.
