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'm trying to run vsftpd on redhat 8. I had it accepting anon connections a few days ago but it decided yesterday not to do so any more. I can connect to 127.0.0.1 no problem but cannot connect to my eth0 IP even from the machine itself. The error message I get is simply "Connection refused".
I have no firewalling in place. I have an entry in hosts.allow of "vsftpd: ALL".
While we're on the subject, can anyone point me to a good site that gives comprehensive, step-by-step instructions for setting up vsftp? I'd eventually like to get this machine accepting authenticated users only.
Thanks in advance for you flep.
Can do...but before you go any further I should tell you I have since reinstalled but am still having this issue. I removed the RPM and downloaded the latest tarball from http://vsftpd.beasts.org.
This conf file is different from what I had before but the error message is identical.
This is interesting. I tested telnet to see if maybe the problem wasn't just with vsftp and, sure enough, I'm having the same problem; I can telnet to localhost but not to my IP.
This makes me think maybe it's the firewall, but as you know I've flushed all my iptables.
On a related note, if I open the GUI for the firewall (I run Red Hat 8.0) and change the setting from, say, 'High' to 'No Firewall', click OK, and then reopen the tool...it appears that the configuration is exactly as it was before I made the change. I think I remember reading somewhere that the GUI will always display the same setting no matter what. This makes no sense to me. In fact, I'm fairly sure I've seen the GUI reflect the way I most recently set it. But now it stays the same.
Is there a reason why my firewall changes apparently don't stick?
However, when I try to authenticate now I get a "530 Login incorrect" error. I checked /var/log/messages and the last entry is as follows:
localhost pam_userdb: user_lookup: could not open database `/etc/vsftpd_login.db'
