This Linux course will teach you how to design, deploy and maintain a network running under Linux and to administer the network services most commonly found in enterprise environments.

Course Description

Linux Foundation Enterprise Training Director Dominic Duval talks about our Linux network management course.

This four-day course gives IT professionals the skills, tools and knowledge to fully design, implement and operate a network with any major Linux distribution. Students will learn how to configure the system network interfaces in a reliable and optimal way while constantly keeping security aspects in mind. Students will also gain hands-on experience with the deployment and configuration of several important network services, such as file, web, email and name servers using reference implementations that are commonly found in large enterprise environments.

For more details view the Course Outline.


This course is designed for system administrators and IT professionals who need to gain a hands-on knowledge of network configuration and services as well as related topics such as basic security and performance.


Students attending this course should be comfortable with local system administration topics covered in our Linux System Administration course. This includes file copying and editing, managing local users, installing packages and generally operating a Linux system from both a graphical or command line interface. These concepts are fully covered in our LF202 - Introduction to Linux and LF242 - Linux System Administration classes.

Basic experience with common network clients such as telnet and ssh is helpful but not strictly required.
