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 have two computers, one fast (the remote) and one slow (local) on a
nated network behind a router. I am using Mandrake 9.0. I have set
up the remote machine to allow remote X sessions. I am successful in
getting it to run on the local machine so that the X display is on the
local machine but I am actually working on the remote fast machine.
I would like to tunnel the local X session through a SSH tunnel (not just an X app butthe whole display) to the fast machine. In setting this up I discovered
that even though I set my hosts.allow on the remote machine to only say:
sshd: slowmachinehostname : ALLOW
and my hosts.deny to:
It would still allow my slow local machine to connect in the raw to the remote machine. Mandrake uses xinetd and it does utilize the hosts.allow and hosts.deny. The local machine cannot telnet to the remote machine with the above configeration.
1. How do I get my remote machine to not allow X traffice in the raw.
2. How do I can get the X display to tunnel through SSH.
