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 using red hat 8.0 and I think when set it up I put a fire wall on. I don't need the fire wall and if you use the gui tool it never works. When I try to get to the internet I just get a connection refused. How do I turn off the fire wall? Or at least edit it so I can allow http, ftp and mail.
Hi, I'm having this same problem I have a fresh RH8 install, I can ping out to anywhere from it, surf the internet, and ping it from any other system but I can't telnet, FTP or Xwindows into the the system. It acts like the firewall on the redhat8 is blocking all this. I chose High on build for security level. I went to the Security level configure and tired no firewall, and I still cannot telnet, ftp, or x windows in.
This is my first RH8 build any help would be apreciated.
I've noticed when I choose apply and close when using that tool it doesn't always make the changes right away. I usally have to restart the computer, I'm sure there is a command to restart the firewall it self but I have no idea. Set it to no firewall and restart it.
Thanks, I tried that,, set it to no firewall clicked ok tried it and same thing, telnet attmepts vanish, ftp attempts = connection refused. the RH8 system is successfully pulling an IP with dhpc, an has a registered hostname on our network and can get out no problem.
anything else that would cause a fresh build of RH8 to refuse to allow telnet, ftp, or x windows?
