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 am having problems with the ftp client using RedHat Enterprise Linux.
I realize I should be using scp or sftp, but that's not possibl in this situation. I'm ftp'ing from a server which cannot do those protocols.
I CAN successfully get/put files from some servers. However, when I try to ftp from an ftp server located on my xp test box, or from a network device (which is the real one I'm going after), i get some weird errors, which I've pasted below:
[cns@mylinuxserver cns] $ ftp xxx.xxx.xxx.200
Connected to xxx.xxx.xxx.200.
220 Passport FTP server ready
530 USER and PASS required
530 USER and PASS required
KERBEROS_V4 rejected as an authentication type
Name (xxx.xxx.xxx.200:cns): Manager
331 Password required
230 User logged in
227 Entering Passive Mode 0,0,0,0,4,13
ftp: connect: Connection refused
Passive mode off.
200 Port set okay
And then I hang. I've tried this with and without my iptables service running and get the same result everytime. I'm thining it has somethign to do with that Kerberos stuff perhaps? The passive mode? (although I turned that off as you can see).
I can ftp to those servers no problem from other unix (aix) machines.
I think I may have been unclear. the FTP Server is NOT on my linux box. I run into this problem when I'm using the ftp CLIENT on my linux box and use it to connect to certain ftp servers (namely a test one I put up on a windows box, and an ftp server on a network device, which is the real target I'm trying to solve!).
