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 problem that should be butt-simple but(t) I am having a hard time with it.
I have a grotty old Linux box running Fedora 14. That will be an antenna host, which means it sits in the attic and pushes data out that it gets from an antenna. Simple. I just want to be able to log in from the machine in my bedroom - a windows client - to administer the attic machine. Both are on the same LAN segment, the Windows machine over wireless to a router, the other connected by 10-BaseT to the same router. I don't want any machine on the other side of the router/gateway to log in to these guys. Both of them see the internet and each other by IP address; neither knows the other's name. Both are using the same DHCP and DNS servers, and the same gateway.
I have been frustrated at getting an SSH connection between them - you may have seen the other thread.
It occurs to me that I just need telnet or something equally simple - not SSH, because the packets are not routed. But telnet-ing has also failed with the same 'Connection timed out' that I get with SSH.
I have tried setting port forwarding on the router, but don't think I need to, and anyway it does not help. I have ensured that the daemon (sshd and now telnetd) is running on the server. I have checked and disabled firewalls. I can't get around this error.
So two questions:
- What is the simplest solution to the problem of getting a terminal up?
- Why are my ssh and telnet connections failing in this configuration (I have another thread on this)?
