Canonical Ltd, the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu, today announced it has partnered with LynuxTraining to develop the first dedicated Ubuntu training courses for the ‘Ubuntu Certified Professional’ status. UCP is a training certification based on the LPI level 1 certification.

This move is towards getting into enterprise market.

The Ubuntu Certified Professional is a training certification based on the LPI level 1 certification. To earn the Ubuntu Professional certification, candidates are required to pass the LPI 101, LPI 102 and the Ubuntu (LPI 199) exams. Exams can be written in any order. A candidate already holding a valid LPI level 1 certification will only be required to pass the Ubuntu exam.

The certification is designed for System Administrator levels and tests the candidate’s ability to:
=> Perform easy maintenance tasks: help out users, add users to a larger system, backup & restore, shutdown & reboot
=> Install and configure a workstation (including X) and connect it to a LAN, or a stand-alone PC via modem to the Internet.
=> Work with the Linux command line etc

  1. Hi Vivek and everyone,

    I have network more that 750 machines and lots of users so I am unable to create everyone userID’s but I want Authentication for 3 IP’s which are my Wi-Fi Access points so the username and password should apply for Only 3 Ip’s but those IP’s are from my internal network which ACL I have to use to apply authentication for those 3 IPs only.

  2. put the access point ips on the ACLs as a trusted ip , on the access points setup the DHCP ( dont use the DHCP of the network to autenticate your pcs that are connected via the WAPS) use the WAPS DHCP and create a subnetwork so the PC that you want to connect to the WAPs get autenticated on the WAPS subnet

    Do you got it? is that what you want to do???

    if you dont follow me because my english send me a phone and i calll you or call me at (809) 816 8282

    regards from the dominicam republic
