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 went to troubleshoot this network,i realised that the users can't access internet without a proxy server ruuning on the network.I had to install and configure one.If i stop it and configure the client browsers to access the internet directly,they can't.The firewall accepts direct access to the internet,so it cannot be the firewall because even when i disable the firewall,things still don't work.I don't know who configured the network before,but i don't understand how it was done.Has someone ever seen such a scenario before?If yes,how is it done.
There is a linux router which does the translation.THe clients are suppose to access the net through it without neccessarily going through a proxy.Am i correct?
The prob is,when i tell the client browser not to use squid or when i stop squid,there's no web access.Again note,squid is not in transparent mode!
