Who are we & what do we do
Thank you for taking the time to visit this page to see what we are all about.
Security Networking Linux started as our own personal technical snippets for easy access.
The main aim of Security Networking Linux is to write easy to read configuration guides and receive as much feedback as possible so that we can improve guides going forward.
We are two network engineers who work for a large WAN provider based in the UK and have experience configuring: Cisco, Fortinet, Juniper, and Huawei routers and firewalls. We are also avid Linux enthusiast which we use for Network Automation and applications such as Media Servers.
The guides are designed to assist in configuration and go into as much detail needed to explain the reasoning for the configuration as oppose to an in depth article that could confuse the reader. You will see that the guides are kept simple and straight to the point unless they demand any additional explanation due to the complexity or nature of the guide.
Guides mainly cover Linux commands, Linux Networking, Network emulation, Network Monitoring, routing and switching and firewall configuration.
If there is anything in the world of Security Networking Linux that you are struggling to find documented in detail on the Wide World Web please feel free to send us a message.
Please feel free to leave a comment on any of our guides if you feel that we have missed something or not quite got it right.
