The New Linux Networking
Most Linux users know that Linux networking features have improved considerably with each new major release of the Linux kernel. The replacement of the ipchains firewall with the iptables/netfilter firewall is an example of this significant progress. However, most Linux users are unaware that the basic network configuration tools, like ifconfig, have also been replaced. If you're still struggling with these obsolescent tools, you need to get up to speed on the new way of doing things.
There are significant benefits to the new tools, such as robust support for CIDR notation. The new tools change the way you'll think about IP Aliases.
You should be familiar with Linux and have a basic understanding of computer networking. You do not need to have detailed knowledge of Linux networking. ALC's IP, Subnetting, and CIDR course or equivalent work experience is also a recommended prerequisite.
