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 am using windows 7 OS. I want to make client server setup & trying to connect putty with Vmware from windows 7. I had installed redhat linux 5in Vmware & set the ipaddress as well but I am not able to connect vmware through this ip address.
Do I need to set some configuration in ssh as well ?
So you want to ssh from your windows7 pc to your linux vm? It's bridged with its own ip address, maybe there's a firewall or something in windows7 blocking it? I haven't had the joy of dealing with W7 yet, I can only imagine what MS might do..... On the vm - Do you have iptables or selinux running? (reject or drop notices in /var/log/messages) Can you get to any other services on the vm? From the windows7 pc or any other pc on the network? Can you ping the vm's ip? Can you establish tcp connections from the vm to any other service on any other device on the network? Can you ping from the vm to any other device on the network? Is your vm getting an ip address from dhcp or did you set a static ip? It's on the same network right?
I had activated lookback interfaces in win 7 OS & set the ip address on both the LAN1 & LAN 2 interfaces in same network, i am able to ping both the LAN interfaces from cmd but while pinging vmware (which is also in the same network), i am getting "Destination host unreachable" message.
Just another thought... is your PC on a home network - with a router? If so you might want to try configuring both the Win 7 host and the Red Hat VM to use DHCP (from your router) to get their IP address.
