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

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.

The dates for Warpstock 2013 are Friday, October 4 through Sunday,
October 6, 2013.
