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 have developed a server/client application using sockets. server app runs on windows server whereas the client app runs on linux server.
I tested both programs on win/linux test machines respectivly. They work fine and can send messages to each other.
The problem is that, today I tested the client program on another linux server and I get "Connection refused" in connect(). (the program was developed in C if that matters)
the only differences between test and production machine network configuration is that: the production machine sits on token ring network and the test in on ethernet (of course we have another linux routers that routes connection from token ring to ethernet)
the windows machine sits on token ring (same network as the test machine)
1. I can ping both machines from windows and linux production server by name and IP.
2. I checked with my net admin. the specificed port that I'm connecting from/to is opened.
