Well RedHat 9 is a very old distribution. Typically anything you do in a command line interface would be done via the bourne again shell (bash) or it will be a package specific command.

I would suggest just googling bash command line basics and taking a look at The Linux Documentation Project (http://www.tldp.org/)

Hello to everyone.

I would like to thank you for the solutions you suggested.
I will visit those sites.

Next I will have to learn to work with: DNS, SMB, Telnet, NIS, DHCP and other concepts.

Regards, Mathieu.

Those are generic things--not specific to Linux. Do you have a book on Networking? What are the references being used in the class?

AND--Welcome to LQ!!

Have a look here:
http://rute.2038bug.com/index.html.gz
This book dates from about the same time as Red Hat 9; in fact, I think RH9 was what the author used. It's also a good introduction.

That may be more difficult, unless you are prepared to be more specific.

Teacher method.

In class the teacher gives a lecture of 2 hours and after we experiment commands on lab. We have a reference book "Red Hat Linux" Fedora core and Red Hat Enterprise Linux, that's it. Am surprise of the kind of support, but I take it positively because it force me to be autonomous.

I have to prepare myself for 4 exams on; DNS, SAMBA, DHCP, Telnet and many other networking concepts. I need a site were I could use as example to practice network configuration.

Thanks again.
Mathieu.

Telnet !!!! that is not used any more -- it is insecure .

well except for the very basic command line stuff that book is very uotdated

true the rout book from an above post is still good ( for the terminal ONLY )

let me try to pull this all together a bit:

You are doing a Networking course, and not a Linux Networking course (correct me if I have misinterpreted this). But, as part of this course, you have to do some lab work with RH 9, which in computing terms, predates the Model T Ford.

You have asked about commands for RH. This may be what you asked for, but it may not be what you need, or at least, may not be what you need now.

This is a very good point: if I remember correctly, I learned most about networking from the early section of 'DNS and Bind', but there are a lot of other books that would do the same thing; they are books that cover some topic in networking that you want to learn anyway (in this case, the DNS system, but it could be any or all of your topics) but the introductory few chapters cover networking generally. I'm not going to say that any particular book is the one for you, but look in a bookshop for one that covers the various networking topics that you want to learn and check whether the introductory section does what you want.

It would also be possible to find web sites that give you the information that you need; search on 'tutorial' and any or all of your networking topics.

Quote:
....the commands of this distribution...
For completeness, and as no one has mentioned it so far, I have to mention the man pages. Just to ease the learning curve a little, I'll point out a few things...the interested student (that's you, in this case!) will want to play with a few things, in order to improve your learning
Code:
man dhcp
won't necessarily help
and even the slightly more thought out
Code:
man dhcpd
possibly won't either
but
Code:
man -k dhcp
(or apropos, if you'd prefer to type that) should give you some choices.

At some point, you'll probably want to try typing
Code:
apropos network
and get too much output. You could reduce the output somewhat by using
Code:
apropos network | grep -i dhcp
to just get the output relevant to dhcp...which is pretty much the same as doing
Code:
apropos dhcp
would, and which is less typing.

Another good point; anything can have security issues, but the issues with telnet are so obvious and well known that I'm surprised anyone is teaching it any more except as an example of what to avoid and why. If your course doesn't mention it, you probably want to have a look at ssh in addition to just the stuff covered by the course.

It would be good to know the versions of Fedora and RHEL you're using. In any case, this might help http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...ion/index.html
In general, have a look at http://www.linuxtopia.org, there's a load of good free to read stuff there.
General cmd line for Linux
http://tldp.org/LDP/Bash-Beginners-G...tml/index.html
http://www.tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/

The Rute tutorial mentioned above is a very good, the concepts/cmds haven't changed much at the cmd line.
