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 encountering an issue with SELinux. I have a homemade shell script that I want to execute from a remote server. This shell script works when I execute it locally - it just cd's to a home directory on the box and reads a text file - but when I try to execute it from a remote server, the script acts like it can't read that prespecified home directory.
I've tried an audit2allow of this and loaded the resulting policy, but without success. Any thoughts or advice on how to understand what is going on here? I'm not familiar with this syscall behavior, but the issue is related to SELinux, since permissive allows that script to be executed as desired.
Thanks in advance.
