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 have a feeling I'm missing something simple, but I just can't see what it is.
I am trying to set up my linux box (FC3) to do a bunch of server functions (Samba, FTP, Apache) Doing one thing at a time, I have Samba up and running with no problems except that I can't get threw the firestarter wall. I need to get this wall working correctly before I remove the firewall on my router. (All three computers have their own walls that are more configurable than the router one)
DHCP is running on the network assigning IP's above 192.168.1.100 255.255.255.0 and up I've configured firestarter on the policy page to allow the SAMBA service to 192.168.1.100//27. If I'm right this should allow 30 addresses starting at 192.168.1.100 to use the Samba service. The problem is when I apply the policy, and then restart the firewall, all access is blocked. If I stop the firewall, all is well again.
Any help is appreaciated, and I'll provide any information that I can.
Originally posted by peter_robb I'm not sure how well firestarter interprets bad subnet numbering..
192.168.1.128 is the end of a subnet..
You will have to find another way of entering that range of numbers, eg 192.168.1.100-129
Thanks for the input, I can easily change my DHCP service to give out lower addresses, say 192.168.1.10 to .40. Or I could modify the policy, to something like 192.168.1.100/28 which off the top of my head would allow addresses between .100 - .106 (But I think I've tried that...)
In anycase, thanks for the reply, I'll do some more testing when I get off work.
