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 am looking to build a secure File Transfer Gateway for my company. The purpose is to act as a gateway for transferring files in and out of a company. These files need to be received, inspected (antivirus etc), logged and then forwarded. Files need to go to a number of other companies, some of which want FTP, some want SSH/SCP, some want FTP/SSL and sometimes rsync. I guess their security people are just like that.
Sure, I could use perl to do all of these things, and it would work well. But I am hoping that there is something else out there. I am feeling perlish lazy.
My current idea would be some kind of tool that acts as configuration tool for all of these tools. In the same way that Firestarter acts as a configuration tool for IPtables
in a perfect world I would like to be able to do the following:
- upload and download files
- schedule transfers to occur at any time, regularly or one off
- use FTP, SFTP, HTTP and CIFS/SMB (maybe even FTP/SSL)
While I know that can shell script all of these I am hoping to find a package that does this. I have looked around for a few horus now and can't find anything and I am hoping someone can help.
