Linux als Intranet-Server

Winfried Trümper

The steps to configure Linux as an Intranet-Server are well understood so this talk does not address them. Instead I will describe some of the non-technical problems which occur when using Linux as well as their solutions.

From my expirience such questions are much more important for the decision makers than the technical aspects
