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 successfully installed the ssh on my server and i can aslo ssh to the remote machine. However, whenever I use the the psftp(which download from the putty site), it reports
"Network error : Connection refused"
> I have read a document about rsh and ssh before and it told that rsh is very bad and insecure so I try ssh. I wonder if hosts.allow is a configuration file for rsh.
hosts.allow is a system wide config file for the tcpwrappers program. Most apps like ssh, telnet, etc. check this file before allowing incoming connections. One of the most common mistakes in setting up servers is not adding entries to this file especially when you see a connection refused response from the server.
