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.

Hello, and hope you are good. I have googled for hours and found many links, but none seem to help me.I get this error upon trying to ssh into my box, before I post the error. Is it possible to try and ssh into my own pc while sitting i front of it? Can I just
ssh email@example.com ?
when I try I get the
ssh: connect to host 127.0.0.1 port 2112: Connection refused
I have allowed connections on port2112 through Shorewall and Firestarter
here is ssh_config
# Site-wide defaults for various options

# ForwardAgent no
# ForwardX11 no
# RhostsAuthentication no
# RhostsRSAAuthentication no
# RSAAuthentication yes
# PasswordAuthentication yes
# HostbasedAuthentication no

I have read a tutorial and many threads on this site as well. Sorry to post another thread pertaining to ssh.I would have rented a book come Monday, but I was excited about setting this up over Thanksgiving weekend. Any help appreciated.
On another note. I was not sure what to uncomment in the ssh_config file.
those settings are for your CLIENT only. have you changed the server to listen on your non-standard port to? that's sshd_config. and the firewall shouldn't get invovled at all if you're connecting on your looback IP.
I feel really dumb right now, but I can't seem to locate sshd_config. Does this mean the daemon is not installed?
I have ssh files but no sshd files. I have read some more and it seems I have to install the service first,.. I was under the impression it was already installed and Ill I had to do was configure users , ports etc.
6552 ? S 0:01 gedit file:///etc/ssh/ssh_config
6766 pts2 S 0:00 grep ssh
I also issued these commands..
service sshd status
Cannot find sshd service
service sshd start
Cannot find sshd service
Got it going now,
urpmi sshd gave me this and I said yes.
The following packages have bad signatures:
/mnt/cdrom/Mandrake/RPMS3/sshd-monitor-0.2-2mdk.noarch.rpm: Invalid signature ((SHA1) DSA sha1 md5 (GPG) (MISSING KEY) GPG#26752624 NOT OK)
/var/cache/urpmi/rpms/openssh-server-3.6.1p2-12mdk.i586.rpm: Invalid signature ((SHA1) DSA sha1 md5 (GPG) (MISSING KEY) GPG#26752624 NOT OK)
Do you want to continue installation ? (y/N) y
I got the iso images from a trusted source(LinuxIso.org, but who knows about the mirrors I guess is what I am getting at) so I installed and everything is going great.
But should I be worried about the missing keys?
Very cool thank you.
