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 just take a Internet connection, It a wired connection. But the ISP guy made configuration in Windows 7 and connected to Internet , it is working fine now. He made a pppoe connection . He gave me username : reza , Password = 123456 , and service name : omstartnet. But i tried to connect it in Fedora 16 , i am unable to connect it . In Network Manager i put all the details but still not able to connect. Kindly help me or send me any helpfull link, so i can enjoy Internet in Fedora as well.
Configure pppoe in linux is quite easy, you must edit file /etc/ppp/pppoe.conf. In pppoe.conf insert your username and password, then insert interface for connect to adsl modem (ex: ethX) and insert primary and secondary DNS. After completing pppoe.conf, run: pppoe-start. Or, you can try: pppoe-setup for simple way.
i follow your instruction but i still i am not able to connect to internet.
i follow the following instruction kindly check.
[root@server1 Documents]# pppoe-setup
Welcome to the PPPoE client setup. First, I will run some checks on
your system to make sure the PPPoE client is installed properly...
Enter your Login Name (default root): reza
Enter the Ethernet interface connected to the PPPoE modem
For Solaris, this is likely to be something like /dev/hme0.
For Linux, it will be ethX, where 'X' is a number.
(default eth0): p4p1
Do you want the link to come up on demand, or stay up continuously?
If you want it to come up on demand, enter the idle time in seconds
after which the link should be dropped. If you want the link to
stay up permanently, enter 'no' (two letters, lower-case.)
NOTE: Demand-activated links do not interact well with dynamic IP
addresses. You may have some problems with demand-activated links.
Enter the demand value (default no): no
Please enter the IP address of your ISP's primary DNS server.
If your ISP claims that 'the server will provide dynamic DNS addresses',
enter 'server' (all lower-case) here.
If you just press enter, I will assume you know what you are
doing and not modify your DNS setup.
Enter the DNS information here: 22.214.171.124
Please enter the IP address of your ISP's secondary DNS server.
If you just press enter, I will assume there is only one DNS server.
Enter the secondary DNS server address here: 126.96.36.199
Please enter your Password:
Please re-enter your Password:
Please enter 'yes' (three letters, lower-case.) if you want to allow
normal user to start or stop DSL connection (default yes): yes
Please choose the firewall rules to use. Note that these rules are
very basic. You are strongly encouraged to use a more sophisticated
firewall setup; however, these will provide basic security. If you
are running any servers on your machine, you must choose 'NONE' and
set up firewalling yourself. Otherwise, the firewall rules will deny
access to all standard servers like Web, e-mail, ftp, etc. If you
are using SSH, the rules will block outgoing SSH connections which
allocate a privileged source port.
The firewall choices are:
0 - NONE: This script will not set any firewall rules. You are responsible
for ensuring the security of your machine. You are STRONGLY
recommended to use some kind of firewall rules.
1 - STANDALONE: Appropriate for a basic stand-alone web-surfing workstation
2 - MASQUERADE: Appropriate for a machine acting as an Internet gateway
for a LAN
Choose a type of firewall (0-2): 0
Start this connection at boot time
Do you want to start this connection at boot time?
Please enter no or yes (default no):no
** Summary of what you entered **
Ethernet Interface: p4p1
User name: reza
Primary DNS: 188.8.131.52
Secondary DNS: 184.108.40.206
User Control: yes
Accept these settings and adjust configuration files (y/n)? y
(But first backing it up to /etc/resolv.conf.bak)
Adjusting /etc/ppp/chap-secrets and /etc/ppp/pap-secrets
(But first backing it up to /etc/ppp/chap-secrets.bak)
(But first backing it up to /etc/ppp/pap-secrets.bak)
Congratulations, it should be all set up!
Type '/sbin/ifup ppp0' to bring up your xDSL link and '/sbin/ifdown ppp0'
to bring it down.
Type '/sbin/pppoe-status /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0'
to see the link status.
