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 accidentally rebooted my debian-based router this morning and now my computers that connect through it can no longer connect to the internet.
I imagine it has something to do with the apt-get upgrade I did a couple days ago. Probably some configuration file got changed but I'm not sure where to begin...
Right now, I can connect to the internet from my router just fine, and from my router to my other computers. I can connect to my router from the internet also. I can connect from my other computers to my router, but not from my other computers to the internet. As in:
lan computers <---> router
router <---> internet
lan computers (through router) <-x-> internet
I'm not at home right now which is how I'm able to post this.
I have several things running on my home router, like bind9, shorewall, and dhcpd. bind9 is used to intercept requests for my local network computers from the local network. I thought perhaps that was the problem and I turned it off but it didn't help.
If anyone has any ideas, I'd really appreciate it.
I figured this out. In /etc/shorewall.conf I had IP_FORWARDING=Keep which wasn't a problem. I must have upgraded something the other day that changed the default behaviour for IP_FORWARDING from ON to OFF. The only thing in my logs I can see that might have had something to do with that is dnsmasq.
Anyway, I now have IP_FORWARDING=On and it seems to be running fine.
