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.

Yeah, I thought I'd nailed this, but there is still an issue with my Slackware machine's Snort startup/shutdown script. For some reason, it'll start fine, will not shut down cleanly and will error out. The script will not start on its own and requires manual intervention (dunno why). I'll have to add some debugging code to it so that I can track the issue. It must be some flag that I'm using when implementing 'ps', because that's the only difference between the two scripts (the OpenBSD and Slackware)....
IP 188.8.131.52, an IP that belongs to Vrtservers.net, has been very active lately. The machine has been compromised twice in 30 days and does a multitude of scans. Last month I reported this IP to isc.sans.org and the machine was eventually taken offline (after waiting over two weeks). I reported it again this weekend when I noticed the IP was scanning against port 80 on my public server.
I've attempted to do some digging via Google but have found nothing solid, other than finding...
I've created (well, modified) a Snort initialization, restart, and shutdown script for Slackware and OpenBSD. They are linked below.
The OpenBSD script works solidly.
The Slackware script works sporadically and I've no idea how to debug it (although I haven't tried 'strace' yet). It appears to work manually every time, but when run as a cron job, it's sometimes, seemingly randomly, doesn't restart. The cron job runs every hours but because it sometimes doesn't start,...
