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 just beginning my very first Linux experience. Some proprietary software I am using at work needs a Unix/Linux OS to run so we bought a brand new RedHat 7.1 workstation. Anyway...
My ultimate goal is to be able to FTP from a Windows 98 machine to the new Linux workstation and send a few files over to run in our software. Both computers are on my company's network, which uses static IP's. The problem is I cannot connect to the workstation.
The workstation is able to surf the Internet and connect to a couple other Unix workstations. It is also able to telnet to the workstations. However, I cannot FTP or telnet to it. Any suggestions?
the obvious thing to look at would be whether the appropriate servers are running on your linux w/s. First trying telnet, which you say you are unable to connect to. Have you started the appropriate daemons?
Check with the following command:
ps aux | grep telnet
this will check the processes that are running and search for anything containing telnet, such as "telnetd" which should be the telnet server for Linux. If you don't see this come up, then you do not have the server/daemon running and it will not accept connections.
FTP may run through inetd or xinetd, depending on which version of redhat you are running. The same rulez apply there...
Q- What is a daemon?
A- Program that runs continuously, accept service request from
the computer system, passes request off to other programs
- xinetd is a daemon, is the same as "inetd" in Unix and Linux 6.1
- xinetd / inetd controls all the network service daemons:
* telnetd, ftpd ...
ps -ef aux | grep telnetd
" " ftpd
- If you don't see these processes you won't be able to do squat.
- cd /usr/sbin if you don't see something equivalent to in.telnetd
and in.ftpd. This would mean the packages/binaries are not
-rpm(Red Hat Package Manger) installs packages for linux.
This command is equivalent to pkgadd on SUN Solaris.
check to see if telnet or ftp package is installed:
rpm -qa | egrep '(wu-ftpd | telnetd)' or something to that
- If packages don't show up then:
rpm -ivh <package_name*> To elaborate further:
rpm -ivh anonftp*
rpm -ivh telned*
- This tells the system to allow incomming ftp/telnet request
