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 installed RH 9 two months ago. Everything is Ok for now (I am a newbie. It seems to me so). I can see my computer in LAN, I can use internet. But the problem is I cannot send/receive e-mails. I work in an networked environment. We use windows machines normally. I have added my linux machine to our network to learn the Linux system and its usage. For e-mail, we have e-mail server. I introduced POP3 and SMTP server adresses to linux e-mail clients (Mozilla, Kmail, Evolution) but I coldn't succeed in sending and receiving my e-mails as I do in my windows machine. In windows we do it by installing a proxy client. But I don't know what I can do in Linux.
After defining required settings to linux I get 'Connection timed out' or 'could not connect to POP server My-email-server-name' messages. When I try telnet I get (My-email-server-name : x.x.gov.tr)
# telnet My-email-server-name 110
telnet unable to connect to remote host : connection timed out.
I investigated in google the same problem and found that :
$ host -t a My-email-server-name
$ host -t soa x.gov.tr
$echo QUIT | telnet My-email-server-name 110
connects to email server. But I coldn't ....
What can I do ? Am I doing and playing with the right things?
