Students will learn the basics of DNS, SMTP, Apache, and Postfix
and will setup their own DNS zones and Apache-based virtual websites.
The topics will also include FreeBSD installation, using the ports
collection for installing third-party software, updating FreeBSD,
custom kernel configurations, understanding the rc.d scripts,
periodic tasks, and packet filtering.

As a member of the BSD Certification Group, the instructor recently
