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.

Not sure exactly how to phrase this but here goes. I have set up an Apache server along with a MySQL data base. I am using perl to generate some dynamic web pages. I want to access the pages from both the Web as well as a LAN that the server is on. The server is the only Linux box on the LAN. I have both static HTML pages as well as the dynamic pages. The router I have does not support loopback NATing.
If I use the same webpages for both local and Web access they do not work properly because of the links. (ie if I provide a local link they do not work for the web and vice versa). I guess I could create two different pages to basically do the same function but this does not seem to be the correct solution, just a work around.
My question: What is the proper way to resolve this? Is this a job for DNS? Is there a way in Perl to check for an outside IP address and return the link correctly? If this is the way to go I will dynamically create all of the web pages. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.
