How To Set Up A DHCP Server For Your LAN

How To Set Up A DHCP Server For Your LAN

This tutorial describes how to set up a DHCP server (ISC-DHCP) for your local network. DHCP is short for "Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol", it's a protocol that handles the assignment of IP addresses, subnet masks, default routers, and other IP parameters to client PCs that don't have a static IP address. Such computers try to find a DHCP server in their local network which in turn assigns them an IP address, gateway, etc. so that they can connect to the internet or other computers from the local network.

LDAP Authentication In Linux

LDAP Authentication In Linux 

This howto will show you howto store your users in LDAP and authenticate some of the services against it. I will not show howto install particular packages, as it is distribution/system dependant. I will focus on "pure" configuration of all componenets needed to have LDAP authentication/storage of users.

Installing Broadcom Drivers Onto Linux + Getting Binary Source

First of all im terribly sorry that i didnt post this in article section. The reason for this is that i have some more questions that go along with it, so please bear with me.

I own a Broadcom BCM4400 series 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Network Controller. When my knowledge was fairly basic (i.e i didnt know any shell programming at all) i was easily confused by Ubuntus graphic interface and i (okay, okay IM sorry :p ) thought it would be like windows, with the opening of files, double clicking on icons and so on. But there was one big problem NO internet. I mean NONE. And then i asked for help here in the forums for how to install ndiswrapper. No answer.... Apparently i had to get the .sys file put it on a USB key and install it for Linux. Except there was none. So i went into the .bat file and noticed this... ServiceBinary = %12%\bcm4sbxp.sys. It means the location of your system service's binary code.... "Your system's binary is actually nothing like that at... Source your stuff:P" - Unknown Hacker
