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.

Wanted to see if anyone else has ever come across this. I have an ftp server running on RHEL 5.5 64-bit. I have the ftp daemon running as a non-privileged user so since it cannot bind to ports less than 1024, I'm having the daemon listen on higher ports and using iptables to redirect the traffic accordingly.
I'm logging all the denied traffic and noticing that a small percentage of the packets are not getting redirected properly. For example, I'm redirecting 443 traffic to 8443 and have a rule to allow 8443 in the filter table. While an upload is running, I see about 1 packet per second that doesn't get redirected and shows up in the filter table as 443 and is subsequently getting denied. Even if the traffic is allowed through in the filter table, the OS is not listening on that port and the ACK packet that was sent gets a RST packet back. It does not appear to impact the clients though and the daemon logs are not complaining.
