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 have two linux machines and LAN between them. The one is Ubuntu9.10 server and another one Ubuntu8.4 desktop. The hostname of the server is
"ubuntuserver" and the client one "Ubuntu-Linux". I try to access the server with ssh command from client, as in the ssh tutorial found on google search.
$ ssh ubuntuserver
all i got is the error ,"ssh: ubuntuserver: Name or service not known"
I am new to ubuntu networking and ssh.I have no idea how to solve it.
I can sucessfully ping to each machines.Any can help me out please?
Just saw little error in the post of PMP. The command to start SSH daemon is:
sudo /etc/init.d/ssh start
if you are logged in as user. If you're logged in as root then you don't have to put the sudo in front. But it's 'ssh', without the 'd', at least on my Debian server (and since Ubuntu is based on Debian I don't think they have changed that).
