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.

This has been a problem for some time now. I am unable to view my domain in a web browser on any of my network computers except for my server. I ssh the X11 to my Kubuntu box when I need to make a post or edit using a browser (i.e. ssh -X email@example.com.XXX). Let me expand on that...
I can see and use hand coded php pages, Dotclear blogging CMS, and Jibberbook guestbook with no problems. However, I use Wordpress as a CMS and all that I get when I type in my domain, internal ip (10.1.10.XXX), or my static ip is the title attribute; if I wait long enough I get the text of my page without CSS.
Any thoughts on a solution to this problem?
I have 4 computers on my network; Ubuntu Server 8.04, Kubuntu 9.04, and 2 Vista boxes.
To be honest I am not understanding what your issue is. Are you running a web server and you are not able to get to it with in the network ? If so are you running a firewall on the sever ? Most distributions run a firewall that blocks external IP'S from connecting on port 80. What is your server distribution?
mbostwick - yes, I operate a web server from home. I have been using Ubuntu Server 8.04 since its release. My firewall has been disabled completely with no success. I am fairly certain that the firewall is not the problem. I am able to view some of my subdirectories just fine. For instance, I can make edit and view my micro-blog (uses MySQL and AJAX), a previous Dotclear install, and hand coded pages just fine using my 10.1.10.XXX internal ip. However, Wordpress installations, Concrete5, and others that require that you use a domain name in the initial config are a no go. I can see 'Buckycomputing.net' in the title bar of the browser, but no content.
My physical connection to the internet consists of a comcast modem/router combo (they make me use this because of my business account) to a 10 port switch.
Well, since my WP pages do not show up, I cannot get browser source code. I was playing around with WP and placed a '/' in the settings for the URL. All of my pages showed up. However, since it is interpreted as a relative URL for the home page, my 'Home' button always showed up as whatever sub pages I was visiting.
In summary, something does not allow me to visit my domain name within my network. Thinking about a reverse proxy install...
