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.

and do you try to ping an address (like 18.104.22.168) or a domain name (like "heise.de")
if you try the latter, your dns server be not be set correctly.
many internet sites also block ping, the above (heise.de) does not.
the machine that i am trying to connect to the proxy server is running on fedora core 4. the proxy server is running on redhat. All the other pc running on windows in the same network are able to go to the internet. i can ping to the proxy server but i cant go to the internet
there is an administrator looking after the server.however, it makes no sense that when i log in using the windows machine, it can access internet but when i log in using the fedora machine, i cant access the internet. i can ping to the proxy but i cant go to the internet.when i open the firefox, it prompts me the user id and password to log in to my proxy server. i provide it with the exact user id and password, but when i pressed enter, it prompt me again.
And how does the authentication from the windows machines work?
Do you need to enter credentials? And again: what do the logs
of the proxy say? The fact that you don't know how it's set-up
doesn't necessarily mean that "it makes no sense".
