Syllabus of tutorials:

Install MS Windows from the CD/DVD. We can try to install version from 10 to XP (8.1 recommended). Installation should include users, administrators, device configuration, patches and updates, antivir system, necessary environment configuration (i.e. NumLock, hiding of extension settings, etc.).

HW installation. Changing harddrives, preparing cables, setting of a separated network (course on real computers, harddrives dedicated for the course allows hardware sharing).

Install selected Linux distribution (Debian or Slackware recommended). Settings, as for MS Windows.

Text mode console commands. Cron, scripts.

Work with server - SQL, Apache, FTP/SFTP, mail. Mail robots.

Server as a firewall, ip sharing (NAT, DNAT, masquerade). Server behind the firewall.

Novell Netware administration, if anyone interested. Novell is not used for many years, but is useful to describe, how the server can work.

Study Objective:

To understand and have some experience with server supervising
