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 having trouble with making a iptable rule that will block all
traffic from 10.14.34.207 and not letting the sender know that traffic is being blocked. I'm thinking whether it should be # iptable -R Input 1 --source 10.14.34.207. I tried reading my book on the section about iptables and their commands, but I didn't quite understand it. Also, if the following entry in TCP wrappers (which from my notes, i think are daemons that allow certain access to a local server depending on the client's rules or permissions)if a client at address 172.16.124.100 tries to access a website running on that server what would happen?
sshd: 172.16.20.114 I'm guessing that since I read from my linux book, if the daemon/client pair matches a line in hosts.allow, then access is granted. So, I'm assuming that since no line matches it exactly as the server, then access would be granted for the client right?
And I'm assuming since the vsftpd line matches the client address, then access would be denied right?
One last thing, can someone clarify for me the vsftd?
Is is the same as ftp?
