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 am new to Linux, previously a Windows user. I have very limited knowledge of my distro, Ubuntu but do have a good knowledge of Windows. I can navigate everything fine and understand how many things work but my problem is that I dont know many of the good applications.
Im a WoW player and decided I would install it on Ubuntu. All works fine, The graphics and everything are ok, using WINE.
My problem is this, I live in university halls, and they block alot of traffic, based on it being non-educational. I can understand that for blocking things like p2p and BitTorrent, bandwidth hogs.
I dont really see why they block WoW, very low bandwidth requirements.
Anyway, I got around this on Windows by using Putty to connect to my shell and then using Proxifier to tunnel all traffic from Wow.exe. I have also used socksify if that helps you understand what I was doing.
What I need is a way of "trapping" all traffic from wow.exe and sending it to my own machine (127.0.0.1) where it can be forwarded to my shell and around their restrictions.
I have tried the various bash commands to connect to a shell but they dont work. Im behind a Proxy that seems to mess everything up. To connect to my shell on Linux I have to use Putty. Not a big deal, I only really use it for WoW. So many SSH bash commands dont work for me.
Been trying that but always get an error, "no route to host". I assume this is because im behind a proxy server. Is there a way to make this method aware of the proxy.
Putty connects fine but the forwarding doesnt want to work. I have it set up how it worked on Windows. I open the dynamic post 7070 and route all my apps to 127.0.0.1 on port 7070 and it wont work. Perhaps because of the proxy again?
