This book is designed as a server reference for Fedora Linux with systemd. The current version covers Fedora Linux 20. Administration tools are covered as well as the underlying configuration files and system implementations. The emphasis is on what administrators will need to know to perform key networking and server tasks. Topics covered include the systemd service manager, the systemd service and target files for each server, the firewalld firewall. Key servers are examined, including Web, FTP, CUPS printing, NFS, and Samba (Windows shares). Network support servers and applications covered include the Squid proxy server, the Domain Name System (BIND 9 and BIND 10) server, and DHCP (DHCP 4 and BIND 10).
