 +====== Jails ======
 +I decided to create a separate section for Jails. I did this so others can easily add their plugin guides after this one. In this way a repository of different plugins can be accumulated over time.
 +The user of this guide can then choose the one they need for the plugin of their choice.
 +Jails basically allow the FreeNAS OS to be customised in particular ways to provide extra functionality and offer additional services that did not come with the standard FreeNAS OS.
 +Jails also provide another very important function in addition to this. If any program running in a Jail hangs, crashes or falls over (like Fester when he has had one sherbet too many) the Jail acts as a bulwark so the FreeNAS OS and other Jails do not also crash.
 +Jails also supply a totally independent network stack which can be very useful and ensures a certain amount of resilience when things go wrong.
 +Before we get to the specifics of configuring a particular plugin we first must set the conditions within which all the Jails will operate.
