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.

Home system: Debian SID
Browsers: Firefox & Mozilla
Can access non-secure AND secure websites (i.e. online banking and my ISP's web mail page).
Work system 1: Win2k
Browser: I.E. Can access non-secure and secure websites from behind firewall w/ proper proxy configuration.
Mozilla: CAN access non-secure website CANNOT access secure websites from behind firewall.
Firefox: CAN access non-secure website CANNOT access secure websites from behind firewall.
Work system 2: Debian SID
Browsers: Mozilla & Firefox: CAN access non-secure website CANNOT access secure websites from behind firewall
Weird! Mozilla & Firefox work fine from home to all sites so it's not a browser issue. BUT those same browsers (behind the firewall and yes they DO have internet access and the proxy is properly configured) cannot get to secure sites! I don't beleive it's the OS either because it's the same on Windows as well as Linux. I've driven myself nutso trying to figure out why but for the life of me I cannot. Any ideas why this might happen?
