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.

CentOS host with VirtualBox.
Virtual Machine "Endian" with bridge host adapter to my physical eth1 interface.
First of all : does Endian have a GUI during install ? Because I had a text-based installation where I had to chose my language and then type the IP-address of the green interface. That's all I was prompted for...
After a reboot I should be able to login to the webinterface @ the IP-address I gave the green interface (192.168.3.1), but when I ping this IP-address the host is unreachable.
When I login to the shell on my Endian Virtual Machine (I have the options 1)shell / 2)Factory Defaults / 3)Reboot) with the default root - endian credentials, and I execute the ifconfig-command I see that the br0-interface has the IP-address of the green interface (192.168.3.1).
My Endian virtual machine is like a physical server on my network (hence the bridge adapter).
The physical NIC is connected to a router.
My host OS (CentOS) received the IP-address 192.168.3.179 via DHCP.
My guest OS (Endian) has the IP 192.168.3.1 manually set.
I try to enter the webinterface from my Acer laptop (192.168.3.169) but am unsuccessful. Also a ping says 'host unreachable'.
The firewall on my host (CentOS) is disabled for the moment.
Why can't I talk to my virtual machine from another client on my network ??
