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.

We have a Local LAN (most computers run Windows OS). Now, I just shared a folder on Samba. I can view the computers on LAN and can do data transfer. Now, what I want is, when somebody is copying a file from my computer, I can only make out by looking at my HDD light (reading light). But, just like Windows allows to view the users that are copying files from my computer, Linux must also have something. So that I can kill the connection. I just want some tool or command so that I can see who all are copying from my computer and hence kill/do-whatever with that person's connection.
But, I cannot kill a connection from this right? Or can I? How to do that? How to view the active transfer? In this output, I can only see some connections. But this output is static! I want a dynamic output.
I want both the list of user names and the file they are transferring. I have specified this before: "But, I cannot kill a connection from this right? Or can I? How to do that? How to view the active transfer? In this output, I can only see some connections. But this output is static! I want a dynamic output."
