This guide is as an overview of the IP networking capabilities of linux kernels 2.2 and 2.4. The target audience is any beginning to advanced network administrator who wants practical examples and explanation of rumoured features of linux. As the Internet is lousy with documentation on the nooks and crannies of linux networking support, I have tried to provide links to existing documentation on IP networking with linux.

The documentation you'll find here covers kernels 2.2 and 2.4, although a good number of the examples and concepts may also apply to older kernels. In the event that I cover a feature that is only present or supported under a particular kernel, I'll identify which kernel supports that feature.
