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.

1) ln -s /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/keys /etc/openvpn/keys
When I'm trying to create this link it's nothing going on. It's not appearing at /etc/openvpn/
And /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/keys is empty too. Does this command just creating a shortcut to the folder? If so may I make it manually as a shortcut. If not - what's my mistake?
2) cd easy-rsa
When I cd to easy-rsa it goes fine but what this mean?
Are this lines commands or output? Just don't understand.
3) openvpn --genkey --secret tls.key
Again (command or line?) - the key seems generated normally but what's that?
You see the difference? 3rd line lost
I just cant left # on 3rd line and create emty 4th one to paste net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1
Also net. disappearing when I'm trying to paste it from buffer.
Where is my mistake?
UPD. I moved forward with this via ftp. Just opened /etc/sysctl.conf to add last line. As I see it's the same just different ways. But the question is still opened - how to add last line to a document via vim(I realized what I need just now )

Yeah, I should listen to ondoho)
Nano is pure revelation. It's just made exactly what I need. vi is fiasco, however I can do this action in two different ways now without vi. I believe I may come back to vi later.
I'm still on my way, and very soon I'll be here with new headache. Hope you'll be here) Thanks
