About the Author:

Christopher Dawson grew up in Seattle, back in the days of pre-antitrust Microsoft when coffee shops were owned by someone other than Starbucks, and when really loud inarticulate music reigned. Chris escaped to the right coast in the early 1990s, where he received a degree in Information Systems from Johns Hopkins University. While there, he began a career in health and educational information systems. Positions at Johns Hopkins, a large biotech company in Cambridge, his own consulting business, and several years of teaching and managing technology in his local school district all prepared Chris for his most recent venture as Vice President of Marketing for WizIQ, a virtual classroom and learning network company. In addition to this professional role, Mr. Dawson writes extensively for ZDNet (the business technology news website published by CBS interactive) where he has functioned as anchor blogger for years, addressing educational and web technologies. Chris lives with his wife, five children, and various critters in a small town in north-central Massachusetts.

Review:

Part I: Questions. 1. Who should read this book? 2. But can't Norton(R) just do the job? 3. I can't just build an Internet gateway! Wait, what's an Internet gateway? 4. Can't I just pay someone to take care of all that Internet security stuff? 5. Free? What's the catch? Part II: OK, I'm convinced. Now what? 5. Start downloading (Raise your hand now if you've never burned an ISO disk image or installed Linux). 6. Get a computer (It's OK to be cheap - you wouldn't be reading this book if you weren't). 7. Installing Untangle(R). 8. Networking 101 (You might need to buy some more stuff here). Part III: So about this so-called "Server"... How do I protect my network? 9. What happens in the box? 10. Included software. 11. Optional software. 12. The user interface. 13. You don't have to be sitting in front of your new computer: remote administration for fun and profit. 14. The firewall. 15. The content filter. 16. The anti-malware. 17. The everything else. 18. Advanced topics. Part IV: I don't think this is enough for me - What's this "scalability" of which you speak? 19. Adding paid features to your box. 20. Bigger box? Bigger network? Or both? 21. When it's time to move to Untangle(R) hardware, pay for support, and give your first box to your grandmother. 22. When it's time to look beyond Untangle(R) . Appendix A: Repurposing a computer (minimum requirements, what you'll need, and what to do). Appendix B: Building your own computer (3 kits for 3 different use cases).
