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.

Hopefully someone can help a newbie out. We have several linux firewalls (Redhat -IPTABLES) connected to our corporate headquaters using IPSEC (freeswan). Everything is working great, except I think I might have a problem with our newest office in Hong Kong.
The Hong Kong internet connection is a DSL with a static address. The setup is a DSL modem with a netopia router behind the DSL modem which provides the connection information the the modem, and provides NAT and DHCP to the inside network. The ISP also created a DMZ address on the Netopia router that passes traffic through to an NAT IP address. The ISP also refuses to change this configuration, so what I need to do (if possible) is setup a linux firewall to use an NAT'd address on it's external interface and create a 2nd NAT network for the network behind the firewall. I'm sure this will work for general purposes, but will I be able to create the IPSEC tunnel through this double NAT configuration?
