  • 1. Network Management with Linux
    Prateek Porwal
    Computer Science & Engg. Deptt.
    Mail ID:
  • 2. Red Hat Linux….
  • 3. Open Source Software
    • When programmers on the Internet can read, redistribute, and modify the source for a piece of software, it evolves.
    • 4. People improve it, people adapt it, people fix bugs. And this can happen at a speed that, compared to conventional software development, seems astonishing.
  • Why is it significant ??
    • Growing popularity
    • 5. Powerful
    • 6. Runs on multiple hardware platforms
    • 7. Users like its speed and stability
    • 8. No requirement for latest hardware
    • 9. It’s “free”
    • 10. Licensed under GPL
    • 11. Vendors are distributors who package Linux
  • The Linux System
    User commands includes executable programs and scripts
    The shell interprets user commands. It is responsible for finding the commands and starting their execution. Several different shells are available. Bash is popular.
    The kernel manages the hardware resources for the rest of the system.
  • 12. Shells
    • An interface between the Linux system and the user
    • 13. Used to call commands and programs
    • 14. An interpreter
    • 15. Powerful programming language
    • 16. “Shell scripts” = .bat .cmd EXEC REXX
    • 17. Many available (bsh; ksh; csh; bash; tcsh)
  • root
    User home directories
    Data files
    Linux File System Basics
    • Linux files are stored in a single rooted, hierarchical file system
    • 18. Data files are stored in directories (folders)
    • 19. Directories may be nested as deep as needed
    • Files are named by
    • 20. naming each containing directory
    • 21. starting at the root
    • 22. This is known as the pathname
    Naming Files
  • 23. Some Special File Names
    • Some file names are special:
    • 24. / The root directory (not to be confused with the root user)
    • 25. . The current directory
    • 26. .. The parent (previous) directory
    • 27. ~ My home directory
    • 28. Examples:
    • 29. ./a same as a
    • 30. ../mango/xgo up one level then look in directory mangofor x
  • File Permissions
    • Every user:
    • 31. Has a uid (login name), gid (login group) and membership of a "groups" list:
    • 32. The uid is who you are (name and number)
    • 33. The gid is your initial “login group” you normally belong to
    • 34. The groups list is the file groups you can access via group permissions
  • File Permissions
    • Linux provides three kinds of permissions:
    • 35. Read - users with read permission may read the file or list the directory
    • 36. Write - users with write permission may write to the file or new files to the directory
    • 37. Execute - users with execute permission may execute the file or lookup a specific file within a directory
  • File Permissions
    • The long version of file listing (ls -ld) will display the file permissions:
    -rwxrwxr-x 1 rvdheij rvdheij 5224 Dec 30 03:22 hello
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 rvdheij rvdheij 221 Dec 30 03:59 hello.c
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 rvdheij rvdheij 1514 Dec 30 03:59 hello.s
    drwxrwxr-x 7 rvdheij rvdheij 1024 Dec 31 14:52 posixuft
  • 38. Interpreting File Permissions
    Other permissions
    Group permissions
    Owner permissions
    Directory flag (d=directory; l=link)
  • 39. File Systems
    • Linux supports many different types
    • 40. Most commonly, ext2fs
    • 41. Filenames of 255 characters
    • 42. File sizes up to 2GB
    • 43. Theoretical limit 4TB
    • 44. Derived from extfs
    • 45. Highly reliable and high performer
  • Virtual File System
    • VFS is designed to present a consistent view of data as stored on hardware.
    • 46. Almost all hardware devices are represented using a generic interface.
    • 47. VFS goes further, allowing the sysadmin to mount any of a set of logical file systems on any physical device.
  • Virtual File System
    • Logical file systems promote compatibility with other operating system standards permitting developers to implement file systems with different policies.
    • 48. VFS abstracts details of physical device and logical file system allowing processes to access files using a common interface, without knowing what physical or logical system the file resides on.
  • User Management
  • 49. User Management
    • Simple way to add user is useradd command.
    • 50. passwd will allow to change the password.
    • 51. Of course there are lot of GUI tools for all these user management.
    • 52. Group all common user to single group.
    • 53. Be careful while editing /etc/passwd
    • 54. /etc/shadow passwd file may also exist
  • Telnet Protocol
  • 55. TELNET Protocol
    • TELNET provides Remote Logging capability on TCP.
    • 56. TELNET is an old application & has widespread interoperability.
    • 57. A TELNET connection is initiated when you enter the TELNET command and supply either a host name or an IP address.
    • The general format of the TELNET command is –
    TELNET [ IP_address | host_name] [ port]
    • After this password is required for the authentication.
    • 58. You can use any commands that are available on the remote system that you are attached to.
    • 59. In Linux, you can’t login as root user from TELNET for the sake of security, you can login as normal user to the server(by default).
  • File Transfer Protocol (FTP)
  • 60. File Transfer Protocol
    • FTP is a useful and powerful utility for the general user.
    • 61. FTP allows you to upload and download files between local and remote hosts.
    • 62. The general form of the FTP command is FTP [ IP_address | host_name].
    • 63. You initiate an FTP control connection to a host by supplying a host name with the FTP command; optionally, you could use the host's IP address in dotted decimal form.
  • 64.
    • Financial Differences
    • 65. Technical Differences
    • 66. End-User Differences
  • Financial Differences
  • 67. Linux vs. Windows
  • 68. Technical Differences
  • 69. Linux vs. Windows
    • Keeping up to date
    By Upgrading
    Linux upgrades faster than Windows
    • Compatibility
    Linux is Backward Compatible unlike Windows
  • 70. End-User Differences
  • 71. Proprietary vs. Open Source
    • Windows is a Proprietary Technology
    Applications will only work on Windows
    • Linux – Open Source
  • Is Linux for you ??
