Using the networking capabilities of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), you can configure your host to meet your organization's network and security requirements. For example:
  • You can configure bonds, VLANs, bridges, tunnels and other network types to connect the host to the network.
  • You can build performance-critical firewalls for the local host and the entire network. RHEL contains packet filtering software, such as the firewalld service, the nftables framework, and Express Data Path (XDP).
  • RHEL also supports advanced networking features, such as policy-based routing and MultiPath TCP (MPTCP).
