[Nettime-nl] [Ascii-announce] home networking workshop

From: decoy <decoy {AT} lo-res.org>

In the week of our eviction date, we are inviting all of you to come and 
assemble computers out of leftover parts and broken boxes you or us have lying 
around. One thing that can be done with old computers like that is using them 
as network routers and firewalls.

Such machines can be used to create in-house networks called LANs. You can also 
use them to create a layer of protection between you and the rest of the 
network, a firewall. If you don't even know what that means, then this course 
may be the right thing for you. If you have heard about it and you always 
wondered how to actually do this, then this is definitely for you.

Location: ASCII Kinkerstraat 92 (hopefully, see below)
Time & Date: Thursday 16 September, Friday 17 September, Saturday 18 September 
14:00 - 19:00 each day

We are planning to cover the following:
basic explanation of networking
how to set up your computer to do it (hardware)
creating a network (hardware and software)
building a firewall (software)

Important Further Information

The course will be running on three days during normal ASCII opening hours 
(14:00 - 19:00)
The course may be interrupted or cancelled because of eviction
During the week we will feature a general computer install and construction 
workshop. This is not part of it, and we are not covering the building of 
computers or the installation of Linux in this workshop. We hope that the 
activities of the rest of the week are already providing us with a number of 
machines that we can use to experiment, but if you have an old computer that 
already runs Linux then bring it (laptops do not make sense for this).
