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 some problems setting up FTP on my linux server. DHCP is enabled and our router sees the computer and everything. It can browse the net with no problem as well.
Since our server will be accessable to the outside and therefore a bit more vulnerable, we don't want our other computers on the network to be accessable to anything. So, we're setting it up so that the only way to access it from *any* computer is through FTP. A bit safer that way.
Anyway, we're running into problems actually getting a computer to connect to the server. The connection just times out when we connect to the IP address. Now, I don't know where to go about looking to setup FTP on the server, so that's part of the problem. If anyone could give me some instructions on how to do this, that would be great. Or, direct me to a well written manual for the "new-to-linux" type of person.
hehe. Please make the check payable to me. The answer is it depends on what ftp package you are using. I think wu-ftpd comes standard with RedHat8.0 but I use vstfpd. See if you have the packages installed by doing:
rpm -qa | grep wuftpd
rpm -qa | grep vsftpd
Ummmm....if the packages are installed you should be able to do:
Then run the 'netstat -l' command again to see if ftp is listening.
