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.

I am trying to set up Apache on a Mandrake 9 machine. I believe that everything is set up correctly. However, the website is not accessable from the outside world. When I type in the IP address of the server from within the LAN the site comes up BUT from outside the LAN it will not. I am using a Linksys router and I have forwarded port 80 to the internal IP address of the server. I am also running Samba on this server and will eventually be setting up email and possible DNS as well. Could there be conflicts eventually if I try running everything under the sun on one machine?
The server only has one internal IP address (192.168.1.200) and I do not believe that the DSL company I go through blocks port 80. A teacher of mine recommended I have apache listen to port 81 and use that port to see if it will work. I haven't tried that yet but will be soon. I will keep you updated.
Obvious questions are okay. Even the most advanced Linux people will make silly mistakes now and again (and I am definately not advanced). I have been trying with the IP address of the router, the actual internet, outside world IP addy.
I did try having the server listen to port 81 and that didn't work either. I have no idea what the problem could be. Sorry I can't give any more information....
