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 trying to use putty to login into my linux os created in VMware. When I try to ssh to the server from another server on the same subnet it works fine. It also works fine when logging in straight through VMware. I would appreciate some advice on logging into the server using putty, and not having to go on another server on the segment and sshing over.
Agreement with ACID*. Issue is networking, not putty.
Not a VMWare player, but VBOX has options for NAT, local, or bridged networking. <br>
With bridged you can pick up an address using dhcp, etc, as if you were a stand-alone box on the network: making running of services and connection from external easier.<br>
With NAT you cannot easily connect to any services on the VM from external without setting forwarding rules on the host: nasty. Even more difficult with local networking only: really nasty.
Check your network settings and consider, the get back to us. We may be able to be more help.
The networking is configured. I am able to ssh to other servers on the network from the linux vm. I modified all the necessary files:
Any ideas? Should I talk with the networking team about a possible firewall issue? The only thing is when I create a Solaris machine I'm able to ssh into the server using putty with no issue.
