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 recently installed RH7.1 system and I cannot get the simplest networking features to work. I have Windows 2000 running on another machine. About all I can do is ping in both directions.
I was expecting an FTP daemon to be running on RH7.1 but it is not. xinetd is running and for some reason the configuration for every single service has the disable attribute set to yes.
I've tried setting it to 'no' for ftpd but it makes no difference. When I try FTP from the W2K machine I get the following:
> ftp: connect :Connection reset by peer
I've also tried running the ftpd daemon directly - it doesn't run for long and simply logs a syslog message, i.e.
Myhost ftpd: getpeername ((null)): Socket operation on non-socket.
Similarly, if I try to start the telnet daemon from the command line I get
telnetd: getpeername: Socket operation on non-socket.
I've tried the above after stopping xinetd but it makes no difference.
TCP/IP is set up as follows:
the "getpeername" thingie is a DNS lookup failure.
IIRC the easiest way is to make sure on both boxes the other is known by adding the ip addy and name to the /etc/hosts and %system32%\drivers\etc, and make sure resolv.conf uses file,dns precedence for lookups.
