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 a static IP address setup at 192.168.0.200. I made sure that the static IP is not conflicting with the routers DHCP server. I then set up port forwarding for that IP through the router (a D-link DL-524).
Initially I tried port 80 (apache) and port 21 (proftpd server), after that failed I thought maybe it was a case of comcast blocking those ports so I switched to port 8095 and 8888, but still nothing externally.
I also tried setting up the IP as a DMZ on the router which I guess should let everything in, but that also failed.
Tested on computers outside the network and via google translate to see if it worked externally using the external IP and has failed each time as stated........
Actually, everything is not working internally either. I can only access the server from the actual computer running it. No other internal computer can access it from the internal IP (shouldn't this be working at least?)
Would really appreciate any suggestions because I've really completely run out of ideas........
