Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Posi-Rep (and/or "Helpful Post?" "Yes") 1) Providing great technical help (especially one-liners) 2) Giving out URLs, RFCs, book references, etc. Anything the OP can use for further research into their problem. 3) Correcting someone's train of thought when what...
Today, I happened upon a couple of comments that implied that Microsoft's Bing search engine actually ran on Linux... The fact of the matter is, it probably doesn't but...
Microsoft have certainly outsourced their cdn function to Akamai who, it would seem, certainly do use Linux and are a major content delivery network provider for a lot of very large companies. So although Bing doesn't actually run on Linux, it clearly relies on it heavily. An interesting state of affairs that...
When you write scripts dealing with setting up or analyzing network interfaces you will eventually run into the task of converting a netmask from one format into another.
Typically, the setup of an ethernet TCP/IP network interface consists of an IP address, a netmask, and a broadcast address. Unfortunately for you as a novice, the two tools ifconfig and ip show the same (or similar) information in a different format.

I am also having issue with receiving e-mails from gmail/hotmail accounts.
I have read on one website that this issue could be cause by my IP address being blacklisted OR could be caused by a dynamic IP. Is this true?...
