The basic network we created with RLES had 4 requirements: a pfSense router, a Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7 server, a monitoring solution, and a wiki.

The wiki solution itself I chose to install was MediaWiki, thus I learned how to install and configure said service. The final server I configured was a RHEL 7 machine, as specified in the lab. I chose Nagios 4 as my monitoring solution, and the learning curve was quite steep, but achievable. Besides learning
