DNS (domain name system) is the "phone book" of the internet, providing a directory of computer names and their IP addresses. BIND is the most common Linux implementation of DNS. When you open a website or send and receive an email, a DNS server somewhere is quietly addressing your message to its intended recipient.

In this instructor-led, live training, participants will learn the critical features of DNS while carrying out exercises in the setup and configuration of a BIND DNS server on Linux. The course starts with a refresher on key networking principles, then digs into hands-on practice with setup and configuration. Steadily, the discussion and practices move towards more complex topics such as security, availability, debugging and troubleshooting.

Format of the Course

  • Part lecture, part discussion, heavy hands-on practice and implementation, occasional quizing to measure progress

The coolest thing was that it was not the "dry" knowledge, there were only a lot of exercises and repetitions on a regular basis, and that all the questions asked during the training were answered by the instructor, which definitely facilitated the understanding of the issue.

The most striking thing for me was the trainer's use of talking to the group in the way "Look", "Look", "Now use this command" - this is a fairly well-known and effective method of maintaining focus among listeners. In addition, extensive knowledge of the teacher. which he can convey in an accessible way.
