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 attempting to set up a server in gentoo with apache (I previously had it working on a windows machine, but am migrating it to a linux machine in attempt to save headache). I have followed the setup instructions on the gentoo wiki to set up apache for virtual hosts. I put a website on this host (mclinkor.mit.edu (188.8.131.52)), and can view it from the local machine, but I cannot view it from other machines. I have not assigned DNS servers, but I'm not sure if that matters (since I can access the internet on the server machine), but I when I was given my static ip, they gave me DNS servers, so maybe this is important. Is there anything else I have to do security-wise to open up gentoo to allow other computers to access apache? Thanks.
So I eventually got this working (since I was stupid and forgot to restart net.eth0 after making some changes there and fixing the above errors.
Now I have a new problem.
I have two static ip addresses that I have configured in net file. I have these connected to hostnames. The old ip address works fine (and links to the three virtual hosts perfectly).
I have another static ip, however which links to another virtual host, which I can only see on the local computer (which seems like the problem I was having before, but the fixes don't work for it).
Basically, to go from one static ip to two, I changed things like *:80 to 184.108.40.206:80.
Is there something else I am missing regarding setting up multiple ip addresses (or maybe I forgot to do something that I did to set-up my original ip, but I've looked back over what I did for that and it hasn't helped).
