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.

The problem I'm having is that I am unable to ssh into my linux box running fedora using the external ip address of the machine. I can do ssh gautam@localhost as well as ssh email@example.com(LAN address). However when I do ssh gautam(184.108.40.206) external ip address it says connection refused. I've also tried connecting from outside the network. I have port forwarding enabled on my router.
Thanks in advance.
ssh -v firstname.lastname@example.org
