There is a lot more to networking than just getting an address via DHCP to get on the internet and start getting things done. This tutorial is intended to start broadening the the understanding of some of the more common, and useful, networking systems in Linux - specifically the Linux briding, the bonding subsystem (including teaming), and where and how taps (and tuns) are used to help move bits around both inside and outside of a Linux computer. The tutorial will make use of pre-canned virtual machines to help guide and illustrate specific concepts and situations in an environment where experimenting with the networking stack, shouldn't, cause issues. The expectation is that a solid groundwork for these concepts and how to use them will get laid out and allow for a deeper understanding of these, very, useful concepts already present in Linux.
