UniForum Chicago: May 26, 2009 General Meeting

UniForum Chicago is proud to announce the topic for the May 26, 2009
general meeting: "Implementation of Business Linux Routers" by Joe
Flasch. Our meetings are free and open to the public and begin
promptly at 7pm at the IIT Rice Campus in Wheaton, IL.

When it comes to routing and networking, Cisco is huge, but there is a
new kid on the block that has many of the features that Cisco has for
a fraction of the price. This is not something that the mid-size
businesses have taken advantage of, but you can inexpensively build
yourself some fully redundant machines that can route, firewall, and
load balance 100-400 mbps with ease, and have the potential to do much
more. In this presentation Joe will show what you need to start and
how to configure and implement hardware and Linux to be mid-range
routers, firewalls and load balancers for a mid-size business. Cisco
and others have some serious networking competition from Linux.

UniForum Chicago is a non-profit organization that holds monthly
informative and technical discussions every fourth Tuesday from 7pm to
9pm. This provides a local forum in the Chicago area for open systems
and UNIX discussion and allows us to meet with students and other
professionals in the field.

All meetings are free and open to members and non-members alike and
are held at:

IIT - Rice Campus
Room 103
201 East Loop Road
Wheaton, IL 60187-8489
