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.

YTalk is in essence a multi-user chat program. It works almost exactly like the UNIX talk program and even communicates with the
same talk daemon(s), but YTalk allows for multiple connections.
The username field may be formatted in several different ways:
name - some user on your machine
name@host - some user on a different machine
name#tty - some user on a particular terminal
name#tty@host - some user on a particular tty on a
name@host#tty - same as "name#tty@host"
aliasname - an alias defined in your .ytalkrc
I do not understand what you want to say. What is the issue? And I guess there is no problem with talk in your system. Only that remote system is refusing the connection. This could be due to the firewall if it exists or that talk daemon is stopped. Have a look at it, I am not sure how talk works internally.
