Chapter 25. Networking Mix and Match > Internetworking with UNIX

Internetworking with UNIX

The UNIX operating system, originally developed in the 1970s at AT&T's Bell Laboratories as a platform for internal software development, is still evolving and growing. UNIX orginally was a commercial operating system distributed at no cost to academic institutions, so a generation of computer scientists learned their art on UNIX systems in college. Most Internet software you're familiar with today was developed on UNIX systems, and it's the most common operating system for high-end graphics and engineering workstations manufactured by Sun Microsystems, Hewlett-Packard, and many other companies. The Open Source phenomenon has also produced the no-cost GNU and Linux UNIX clones, ensuring that a new generation of programmers will continue the tradition of openness, cooperation, and sharing that typify the UNIX community.

This chapter looks at ways to network Windows 2000 with UNIX-type operating systems. Although many of the examples involve Linux (Red Hat Linux 6.0), most of the examples can be translated to almost any UNIX-type operating system.
