    Warpstock is pleased to have Lewis Rosenthal offer a 4 hour workshop on networking on Friday, October 4.

    The fresh install will start with a system (probably a VM) ready to be set up. We'll start with an Easy install, and explore the meaning of the various networking options. Next, we'll start over, but select Advanced, and contrast the differences in the available networking options.

    Using a running system, we'll make live changes to the network setup and observe the effects. This will be a good time for Q&A, as well, so attendees should bring along either their troubled machines or as much detail of their issues as possible, and we'll try to recreate them on a test box.

    We'll have a look at the various configuration files which are managed through the graphical tools, as well, and discuss testing for basic IP connectivity, routing, and DNS resolution.

    Finally, if time permits, we'll blend wireless into the mix, install a Wi-Fi adapter, the WPA supplicant upgrade, and create a profile in XWLAN for it.

    The location chosen is the Drury Inn& Suites Airport, located at 1270 Virginia Avenue, Atlanta, Georgia, United States 30344.
