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 was wondering if someone could suggest a rule or combination of rules to allow vsftpd to work behind iptables? It works when the firewall is down.
This is the rule I have at the moment which is not working
$IPTABLES -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 21 -j ACCEPT
I'm using vsftpd to allow local users access to a shared folder.
my vsftp.conf file:
ftpd_banner=Welcome to the back-side of eternity: Unauthorised use PROHIBITED
You'll need both the control and data ports (20,21). But this bring in the Active or Passive ftp server arguement. I'd have to google it, but one of them opens a dynaic random port while the other only uses the (20,21) ports.
I think this helped deal with another problem I was having for local user access. Users were getting prompted for passwords at unusual times, for example, when trying to descend into a sub-directory within the root directory, I think this must have been because passive connections were being lost.
