Absolute BSD focuses on FreeBSD's features, benefits, and strengths - specifically on using BSD systems as high-performance Internet servers. Designed for new system administrators with basic UNIX knowledge who want to accomplish essential tasks with the FreeBSD operating system, the book's main focus is on FreeBSD, but much of its information is also applicable to OpenBSD and NetBSD. BSD-specific features are covered, such as how to build a high-performance server, secure it, prepare crash dumps, and interoperate with other network servers. A troubleshooting section that addresses problems that a new FreeBSD administrator might encounter is also included.
