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.

yeah i figured as much. i began to realize i had the wrong cds with me. i'm back at the office now to fetch the right cds.
we just found them. they had been moved from my old office into someone else's office. i didn't get them to my new office when i moved. anyway i now have the installation cd's in hand. (i feel kinda stupid now)
i'll probably install them first thing tomorrow. so watch thread then for new problems that may occur. thanks again for the help.

ok linux is up and running on the system. however we can't seem to log back into it remotely from the office like we use to. we can log in remotely to one of the old servers here and ping the new one (so we know it's up and listening), but we don't know why we can't log into it remotely. i've edit the resolv.conf file and the ifcfg-eth0 file. i don't know what else to try now. could anyone help.
yes we are using ssh. i get on one of the older servers and type:
and i get this response:
ssh: connect to address xx.xxx.xxx.xxx port 22: Connection refused
however i'm able to ping that ip address from the old server. and i can also ssh to my other older servers too. so it's not a problem with the ssh command on the older server. it's the problem with the newer server, and some set up.
what do i do now? should i try "urpmi openssh-server" (just some command i found not sure i need to.) also after running "rpm -qa" i see that i have:
i'm not very good and managing the firewall... there is one up at the moment but all the entries are rather criptic......i set up the server for medium protection. so i don't know what all that entails. i have gone in there however to try to have it ACCEPT ssh input. not sure i did it correctly. or whether it will work b/c of some criptic entry linux defaulted in the installation that might trump my accpet. what should my accept line be...and what reject line should i be looking out for?
ok firewall is back in place.....same firewall that was there before we had to reinstall red hat....so if we have a problem it isn't with the ipchains. i still can't remotely connect to the new server from the office (aka putty) but i can connect to it through ssh <ipaddress> command from the older servers. so ssh should be working. why can't i connect directly to it now from work? it just sits there and finally times out, giving me a connection error.
so you are trying to connect to the "server" via a windows box eh?
When i set up my stuff, i didn't really have to do much of anything to get ssh to work... I don't run a firewall on my linux boxes tho, so that might have something to do with it... sence my linux boxes are all on the internal side, there is no need for it a firewall -- did you install a gui on that machine? I don't know how to change the firewall in text mode, but you can change it in the GUI and allow SSH through....
but if SSH is working on linux machines, i don't see why it wouldn't work with a winders box unless something is mis-configured with the connection setup with putty...
when I get home I will throw up some settings for putty from my laptop that i know work...
PM me your email address and I will send them to you..
well putty i know works b/c i use to be able to connect to the new server with it before i reinstalled. and i can still connect to the old servers. i'm almost positive it isn't an ipchains problem b/c i have the exact same set up now as i did when it was working before i reinstalled everything. i'm afraid i don't have something turned on or installed but i don't know what to look for now. since i'm pretty sure ipchains is in order and i've changed nothing to putty on this end, and i know ssh is running b/c i can ssh from the older server into it the new one (just not directly to the new one). if anyone else knows where to look, or if there is some kind of initialization that needs to be done on things that are setup correctly.... anything ... please help.
