BSD admin training in February in Seattle

Puget Sound Technology to teach FreeBSD and open source administration.

Puget Sound Technology is teaching hands-on system administration training
focusing on FreeBSD, February 3 - 6, 2004, in Seattle, Washington, USA.
This class covers standard open source skills such as mail server
management (using Postfix), DNS with BIND, Apache Web Server
Administration, as well as FreeBSD admin fundamentals.

FreeBSD is known as a reliable, secure, and high performance Unix
operating system. According to a recent Netcraft study, FreeBSD powers
nearly 2 million active websites; and popular hosting providers, such as
Yahoo, NTT/Verio, Infospace,, and others take advantage of

Puget Sound Technology's FreeBSD course includes instruction
in system startup configurations, user and group administration,
"hardening" techniques for advanced security, custom kernels,
packet filtering and Network Address Translation, and more.

"Students will setup their own authoritative DNS servers and secondary
DNS servers for the other classmates," said Jeremy C. Reed of Puget
Sound Technology. "And they will configure the Apache HTTPD webserver
for virtual web hosting."
