Downloads & Licensing

The content of this website is made available free of charge. But we know that many people like to obtain a physical copy or want to have a copy downloaded for offline reading. Therefore we have made the material available in PDF format to those who want a copy of their own.

Homenet Howto in PDF format

I have compiled the contents of these web pages into a PDF material in A4 format which you can download. The PDF contains all of the material on including both the texts and the pictures, for a total of 147 pages. It has been somewhat edited with a text flow that is more suitable to the leaflet format. The PDF does not contain advertising or DRM (Digital Rights Management) protection of any kind.

Download the material

If you find the material useful I would be most grateful if you would consider making a donation.

Commercial use and licensing

The material, both online and in the PDF leaflet, is available for commercial use. It is well suited for courses and classes that introduce networking concepts and does so from a perspective that is familiar to most participants.

The material could be handed out to students or employees as a self-study material, or could form the main curriculum in Computer Network Basics training classes.
