5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely fantastic companion book, 5 July 2004
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Secure Architectures with OpenBSD: With OpenBSD (Paperback)
I recently bought this book to help me setup my own webmail system. The book is so clearly written that I have spent the last four days consumed by it. This has been one of the best book purchases I have ever made. Not only did it fill some serious gaps in my UNIX and OpenBSD knowledge, but it also explained the "Why?" of parts of the operating system which I have never found elsewhere.
The examples given and configuration elements explained have helped lead me on to further information and make the logical links between components which I did not see clearly before. This is certainly an excellent book for anyone currently administering or considering deploying OpenBSD servers. It covers setting up mail servers, DNS, NFS - in fact, armed with this book, most technical people could probably have a central infrastructure running in a few days.
After reading this book for four days I felt confident enough to begin configuring many of the services. In the last 48 hours I have setup DNS, mail and NFS using the clear and precise instructions & examples from this book - And the great thing is, I know WHY it is done that way. This book, together with the OpenBSD project's manual pages and "Absolute OpenBSD" by M. Lucas have given me the confidence I need to prepare and deploy systems which are secure and reliable.
This is simply a great book which every new and experienced OpenBSD admin should read.
