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'm pretty new to linux so you'll have to forgive me if this is a dumb question.
I've recently installed Gnutella on my RH9 system, and I'm having difficulties making it work. The icon at the bottom of the Gnutella window is telling me that it thinks I'm firewalled (I can't remember if I set that up during the redhat installation, sorry). It says that I won't see any "push results" which means that I may miss a lot of search results.
I've seen from another thread (that has remained unfinished for a few months now so is no help) that the result from the command "/sbin/iptables -L" could be helpful, so here goes,
Well let me tell you that you DO have a firewall (congratulations). I'm not sure what the specific problem is but I can tell you that you're better off getting a program called gift. It's got a gnutella plugin as well as fasttrack and it's own network called openft. I works really well. If however, you want to use gnutella, you can give the command iptables -F. That flushes all rules so you wont have a firewall anymore. The firewall will be restored on reboot, though so you'll have to find which program is loading it and disable it. It might be a good idea to make your own firewall.
Thanks adz -- at least I know I have a firewall now!
Are there any changes I can make to the iptables that would let just the one port have unrestricted access to the net?? (I know how to change the port Gnutella uses, so it would be useful if I could open up just that one.)
