Many computer networks are now a hybrid of different types, typically a mixture of two or more different operating systems. These systems must successfully integrate for the complete system to operate properly, whether it is in terms of its compatibility, its security or its ease of use. The main aim of this book is to cover the configuration, architecture and networking of the three of the most popular networking operating systems Microsoft Windows, Novell NetWare and UNIX.
