Hamster is starting a basic networking course on the courses list.
People can select the 'topics' (courses in our case) that they wish to subscribe to by modifying their subscription options.
The aim of the course is to introduce people with no prior networking experience to basic networking hardware, setup, terms and concepts. The goal is to set up a simple home network of two or more computers, that share a single connection to the internet. You need only a willingness to have a go at trying something new and to not beafraid to ask questions.
This course will not cover wireless networks or VPN setup (although of course questions about either would be welcome on techtalk).
