Harness the power of the OpenVPN 2 network using Packt's new book

Packt is pleased to announce OpenVPN2 Cookbook, a new book which conjures 100 simple yet incredibly effective recipes which helps harness the power of the OpenVPN 2 network. Written by Jan Just Keijser, this book provides solutions for the most common problems and scenarios faced with OpenVPN.

OpenVPN is a free and open source software application that implements virtual private network (VPN) techniques for creating secure point-to-point or site-to-site connections in routed or bridged configurations and remote access facilities. It uses SSL/TLS security for encryption and is capable of traversing network address translators (NATs) and firewalls.

OpenVPN2 Cookbook explores all the advanced features of OpenVPN and even some undocumented options. It covers all the common networks, including point-to-point networks and multi-client TUN-style and TAP-style networks. Each technical aspect is broken down into short recipes that demonstrate solutions with working code, and then explains why and how that works.

All in all, this book helps one solve their OpenVPN problems, as well as helps configure OpenVPN on Linux, Windows and Mac OS X and set up a public key infrastructure (PKI) for use with OpenVPN, including X509 certificates, certificate revocation lists and intermediary certificate authorities.

System administrators and networking professionals who are interested in building secure VPNs using OpenVPN will find the book an interesting and beneficial read. This book is out now and available from Packt. For more information please visit: www.packtpub.com/openvpn-2-cookbook/book

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
