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 never used a bittorrent client before but lately I've been playing around with Ktorrent but I don't know how to make it work through guarddog firewall.
If I disable guarddog then files start downloading (albeit very slowly) so I know that is the cause.
With guarddog running all files are just stalled and won't even start.
The are protocols in guarddog for bittorrent peer and bittorent tracker. I've tried allowing both, local and remote but still nothing downloads.
Open up Ports 8661 and UDP port 4444. I'm assuming the 8661 is TCP, but it might be both TCP/UDP.
These are the ports that are listed in the KTorrent preferences. If your access is through a NAT router, you will probably want to forward these ports to the computer that is running Ktorrent.
Actually no, it's still not right.
Basically if I add a torrent to Ktorrent while guarddog is runnning it never starts downloading.
If I disable guarddog and then add a torrent it starts downloading then if I restart guarddog it continues downloading
til it finishes, though it does slow down a bit.
So I don't understand that at all.
I've tried installing Azureus and it downloads ok with guarddog running, using the same port as ktorrent so it seems to be a problem with ktorrent.
