Chapter 10. Networking with Linux > Working with Red Hat Network Services

Working with Red Hat Network Services

Servers running Red Hat (and other Linux distributions) can be configured to offer any number of network services, such as DNS, DHCP, and the Apache Web server. They can also provide file and print services (discussed later in the chapter). Linux distributors such as Red Hat provide special editions of their Linux products that provide a more robust networking platform than the basic Linux distribution that we are discussing in this chapter.

Tip

You can quickly switch from normal user to root user in a terminal window by typing su and then pressing Enter. You will be asked for the root password. The terminal is now running in the super user mode, allowing you to change service configurations and otherwise adjust system settings.
