The networking capabilities of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) enable you to configure your host to meet your organization's network and security requirements. You can configure Bonds, VLANs, bridges, tunnels and other network types to connect the host to the network.
You can build complex and performance-critical firewalls for the local host and the entire network. Packet filtering software, such as the firewalld service, the nftables framework, and Express Data Path (XDP).
RHEL also supports advanced networking features. For example, with policy-based routing, you can set up complex routing scenarios, and MultiPath TCP (MPTCP) enables clients to roam among different networks without interrupting the TCP connection to the application running on your RHEL server.
