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.

Ok so I've got a server running Ubuntu 10.10. Everything is up and dandy. I am trying to set it up as an SSH server which I installed on the option when setting it up. Open-ssh. It will not allow ssh connections. Aside from selecting the option I have done the sudo apt-get instal ssh-server ....I have also ran the /etc/init.d/ssh start. Even with this it still will not establish a connection. I have gone into the router and set 22 to be open and still nothing. Anyone have any other ideas?
You are unable to connect even on your same home network? Do you have the firewall on the server set to allow port 22? Try disabling it altogether for a minute and see if it helps with sudo ufw disable. Also make sure your config file, /etc/ssh/sshd_config is configured properly. There will be a line close to the bottom where it specifies the users allowed to connect. You can modify the file as you see fit then restart the SSH daemon.
I thought ubunutu didn't come with a built in firewall? I can ssh from the server ssh localhost. But I can't ssh from inside the network or outside the network. I will paste the contents of iptables -L as soon as I can get it typed up since I am running ubuntu server.
