    I started with the Internet in 1989, for this reason I probably was one of the first 10.000 Internet specialists in Germany. I worked in the Second Level Support at Sun Microsystems (1989) and (1991) as an consultant, together with some network-engineering collegues I have managed projects, mostly for international operating companies. I have programmed a lot with TCP/IP and know the internas of the most important services, like Telnet, FTP or NFS pretty well. I gave lectures about topics "TCP/IP und NFS in practice" (1992), "Networkprogramming under UNIX" and "Sytemprogramming under UNIX" (1993-95). Heterogeneous Networks, Client/Server Implementations (real ones, not HTTP :-)), TLI, Sockets, Firewalls (not installation, but design & implementation), Security, Network and System managment, DNS, ONC (Open Network Computing: RPC, NIS, NFS, OpenWindows (X11), PC/NFS).

  • System and Network-Management
    I spent substantial engineering time with this topic. Approximately 4 men-years since 1993. SNMP, MRTG, Big Brother, CA Unicenter TNG, Lance+.

  • Microsoft Systems
    I must admit, i am acquanted well with Win*, have developped about 2.5 years with NT.

Complete development of the IP-Accounting Software for automatic billing. Configuration of Cisco gateway-router, coaching of Unix-Cluster systems, Implementation of Firewall-Security Solutions and Unix Systemadministration. Installserver for Unix-Systems.

  • Databases
    From the beginning, I had to work with RDBMS in about every second project, mostly as engineer and admin in one person. But I always made that by the way, because necessary, it never was my primary job. Programming, Embedded SQL (C), Oracle, MySQL. Ingres, Informix, Clipper, dBASE.
