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 programmed my embedded system as a html server. Windows (98,NT,2000,Xp,ME) can ping, get html files, pics, even java classes, but I cant Ping my system from a Linux box with newer or older versions. The linux box has 2 NICs, Eth0 for road runner, and Eth1 for local network (home network). Anyone has idea what I'm doing wrong with my linux box? Or is it my embedded program? Any difference between Windows ping and Linux ping? Please help.
thanks for your response. My embedded system ip:10.0.0.100,netmask:255.255.255.0. Linux ip:10.0.0.1, netmask:255.255.255.0. I'm pinging with ip address. Roadrunner is directly connected to eth0, and eth1 is connected to a passive hub, 1 win98 and my embedded system are also on the hub. Output route on libux box looks like this:
all other gateway=*, and flag=U
yes, my linux box can ping my win98 machine but not the embedded system. and my win98 machine can ping the embedded system. More and more it looks like the embedded system software is to blame??? Netmask for all 3 are 255.255.255.0. and ips are static. I also tried on a larger network (around 100 nodes) with the same result - windows can ping but linux cant.
Thanks guys.. for your time. The problem was my embedded software. Anyone writing web/network software for linux should know that there are some differences between Linux browser and Windows browsers - the number of bytes they send to the server. Thanks again.
