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.

Hi, I have been trying to get courier-imap/postfix working for a few weeks now, with no success...
The situation is this, I am able to send and receive email(to/from all domains), from local machine. But when I am unable to log into IMAP server, but can log into POP3 server.
I can run authtest and authenumerate and produce the results to show a valid account, username and password, but when logging in via telnet to test login, I get login failed.
I have read through the log files, which only show the user/pass entered and the fact that it failed, but no explination as to why
here is the output from authtest
server:/home/tom # /usr/local/sbin/authtest luke lukegolf
Authenticated: luke (system username: luke)
Home Directory: /home/luke
Encrypted Password: bk6Sm0eFomxw2
Cleartext Password: lukegolf
here is my authdaemonrc file
# The authentication modules that are linked into authdaemond. The
# default list is installed. You may selectively disable modules simply
# by removing them from the following list. The available modules you
# can use are: authcustom authcram authuserdb authldap authpam
# The number of daemon processes that are started. authdaemon is typically
# installed where authentication modules are relatively expensive: such
# as authldap, or authmysql, so it's better to have a number of them running.
# PLEASE NOTE: Some platforms may experience a problem if there's more than
# one daemon. Specifically, SystemV derived platforms that use TLI with
# socket emulation. I'm suspicious of TLI's ability to handle multiple
# processes accepting connections on the same filesystem domain socket.
# You may need to increase daemons if as your system load increases. Symptoms
# include sporadic authentication failures. If you start getting
# authentication failures, increase daemons. However, the default of 5
# SHOULD be sufficient. Bumping up daemon count is only a short-term
# solution. The permanent solution is to add more resources: RAM, faster
# disks, faster CPUs...
# When you have multiple versions of authdaemond.* installed, authdaemond
# just picks the first one it finds. Set "version" to override that.
# For example: version=authdaemond.plain
# authdaemonvar is here, but is not used directly by authdaemond. It's
# used by various configuration and build scripts, so don't touch it!
If anyone could give me any ideas, that would be fantastic!!!
Thanks in advance
