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.

G'day. I tried to connect to my Web Server(remote) using ftp but received the following error messages:
LOCAL -> Connecting to (sinaran.net*****.com).
LOCAL -> Connected to (sinaran.net*****.com) -> IP: 204.92.xxx.xxx PORT: 21.
LOCAL -> Socket connected waiting for login sequence.
REMOTE -> Ftp server ready.
COMMAND -> USER xxxxxxx
REMOTE -> User xxxxxxx okay, need password.
COMMAND -> PASS **********
REMOTE -> You are user #17 of 350 simultaneous users allowed.
REMOTE -> Restricted user logged in.
COMMAND -> SYST
REMOTE -> UNIX Type: L8
COMMAND -> REST 100
REMOTE -> Will attempt to restart at position 100.
COMMAND -> REST 0
REMOTE -> Will attempt to restart at position 0.
COMMAND -> PWD
REMOTE -> "/" is cwd.
COMMAND -> TYPE A
REMOTE -> Type okay.
COMMAND -> PORT 192,168,xxx,xxx,4,176
REMOTE -> PORT command successful.
LOCAL -> Opening data connection IP: 192.168.xxx.xxx PORT: 1200.
COMMAND -> LIST -a
ERROR -> Cannot connect to 218.208.xxx.xxx:50243 - Connection refused.
ERROR -> Connection closed.
Where 218.208.xxx.xxx is my PPPoE IP Address. My Internet gateway server is RedHat 9 while the client is Win98 PC. If I connect directly from the server(RedHat), there is no problem.
G'day. What I noticed was that when I used my Gateway Server (RedHat 9) to ftp, it connected at port 219.95.xxx.xxx:30xxx when I issued ls command & the connection was OK. Whereas, ftp with my Win98 client, it connected at port 219.95.xxx.xxx:50xxx & when I issued ls command, it said connection refused. Any idea?
