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.

First I would like to say thanks for all the help.....Here is the question
1. I have 2 Pc's connected through a router. one is a RedHat box the other XP. Both can communicate with the web fine.
2. The ip on the Red Hat box is 192.168.1.114 (I think)
3. I can ping the RedHat box from my Windows box
4. SSH from my Windows box to REDHAT box and it times out
However, at the command line inside RedHat I can ssh to myself
The question is I CANNOT get Telnet from my XP box to REDHAT box using ssh. In the RedHat box I went to server configuration and made sure sshd is running. Is there a way to determine if sshd daemon is running and if it is not how to I start that process?
I did a ps -ef and I do not remember seeing sshd or anything like that. I did not check to validate the port number though
Oh ya, what is the defallut port to connect at is it 22. I think on my router setting I allow connections on ports 20-24 on ip address 192.168.1.114
In Fedora at least you can change it with system-config-securitylevel -- in RH I think it may be redhat-config-firewall but I'm not sure. The way to do it by hand is to modify your iptables ruleset, but if you aren't familiar with it, it can be sort of difficult. I don't even know that your firewall is the problem, but it's something to look at.
At first I interpreted your post to be a typo. Are you trying to telnet into ssh? Be sure about this, because it won't happen. In order to ssh into your redhat machine, you need an ssh client on windows. I personally use cygwin with all it's little goodies, but if you want help on that. You'll need to ask again. For now, I'll just point you to a great free program for M$ PuTTY
Download this, and now you'll be able to "ssh into your machine"
Okay, let's be clear here.
I telnet'd into the machine means you typed "telnet machine"
I ssh'd into the machine means you typed "ssh machin"
ftp is insecure, because people can view everything you're typing. Almost nobody in this forum will recommend using telnet.
Before I open up an insecure ftp server, I would try another sftp client. Try PuTTY . It's great, open source and free (as in beer). Never quite understood that one?!! Try using this first, and let me know if it works.
I CAN conenct to my Linux box from my xp box using putty. I wanted to be able to transfer files back and forth from my XP box and redhat box. I know that sshp come w/ an ftp server which is what I have on my Linux box.
However, psftp DOES NOT work it will just sit there never allowing me to log in.
