LPI CertificationsA series focusing on Linux Professional Institute Certifications (LPIC)
This is a 13 week podcast of the LPI study group which was conducted with the linuxbasix.com group. This is a weekly meeting from June 8th to August 31 of 2011. Details can be found at the linuxbasix forums - www.linuxbasix.com
Syndicated Thursday is a channel on HPR to expose our listeners to other podcasts, interesting talks, or just the weird and wonderful.
Candidates should be able to install and configure internal and external communication devices such as modems, ISDN adapters, and DSL switches. This objective includes verification of compatibility requirements (especially important if that modem is a winmodem), necessary hardware settings for internal devices (IRQs, DMAs, I/O ports), and loading and configuring suitable device drivers. It also includes communication device and interface configuration requirements, such as the correct serial port for 115.2 Kbps, and the correct modem settings for outbound PPP connection(s).
Key files, terms, and utilities include:
