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've made a little rc.firewall script with the help of the howto files, however, it does seem that the server (192....1) and the computer next to it, which i use (192.....2), which both use slack 9, seem to be getting the least amount of bandwith or %3 when someone else from the network is also using the internet. is it possible with iptables to specify preferred computers for bandwidth and/or specify a bandwidth limit for each ip?
now for the bandhogging. i dont know what link saturation is, but when the other computer is downloads, neither the server nor my main machine can get a lot of bandwidth (like i said, sometimes all i get are bites!).
ah and btw, is it possible to looks at what computers are downloading through the server. a friend of mine manages his own lan, but he uses windows (he wanted to use linux, but i didnt know then anything about masqing and could not help him), and wingate. wingate shows him what other computers are downloading. is that possible with iptables (or in linux for that matter)
If you have IPTables' connection tracking enabled then you can look at /proc/net/ip_conntrac to see what connections are live, although this won't tell you exactly whats going on in terms of current throughput etc etc. You may want to server for conntrack-viewer.pl to make it a bit easier to read!
thx, that worked out nicely, but i have a question.
how do i stop a given connection? is there some sort of gui program for this, either X or preferably, ncurses? and can i see exactly what is being downloaded and how much speed does each connection take???
