KLUG Meeting Dec. 13th 2016

The group remoted into the ClearOS server that we are setting up for our network lab.  Working from a terminal on a Linux laptop we used the SSH protocol and learned the how to login remotely.  We then created group and user accounts using command line tools.  We will be expanding the network in future meetings with a variety of physical and virtual machines with a both microsoft and linux software.

The public is welcome to join us at our weekly meetings we welcome both novices and experts!
