Course Description
This course teaches basic topics in Solaris Network Administration. The operating system will be Solaris 9 (SunOS 5.9) - Sun's implementation of SystemV release 4. The course is taught on a Sun Ultra System. The objective is to prepare the student for administering a Solaris 9 system in a networked environment.

Course Length:   4 days

By the end of the course, you will be able to...
- Configure routing and routing tables
- Configure subnet masks, including variable length masks
- Configure DHCP clients and servers
- Configure DNS
- Configure a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server and client
- Configure a system as an IPv6 host or router
- Configure IPv6-over-IPv4 tunnels
- Troubleshoot network problems

The student should have taken a Solaris administration course or have equivalent experience administering a Sun Solaris system.  The student should also be knowledgeable of system run levels and editing system configuration files.
