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.

Hi all. Sorry for the super noob question, but I'm new to the whole Linux thing as of a few days ago. Anyway, recently installed RedHat 9.0 on a local machine. Very impressed with the OS, but I am having troubles FTPing to my NT machines. FTP starts up on the Linux machine, but it can't connect to local IPs (i.e. IPs of my NT machines). Also, I can't connect to the LInux machine from the NT machines. Basically just trying to find info. on what all I need to configure to get FTP working on the Linux machine. FWIW, I'm making the FTP connections on the NT machines using WS_FTP.
Links to pages for configuring FTP for RH 9.0 would be awesome or just filenames I should open and modify.
Thanks for the answer, but I spoke too soon. After reading some pages I decided to pop in ISO image 1. Looked through the packages installed, and sure enough, FTP was not (where is the hanging your head in shame face when you need one?). At least I now have VNC so I don't have to keed switching desks, plus know how to start up the vsftp daemon (as per your post). I'll read up on configuring vsftp before I ask anymore questions .
OK, so I installed vsftpd and it starts/stops upon calling "service vsftpd start/stop". Also, I created /etc/xinetd.d/vsftpd so the vsftpd starts automatically. Now FTP to 127.0.0.1 works, but the FTP server rejects requests from the Windows box. Note that I can ping the Linux box from the Win box (and vica versa). I am guessing I need to modify /etc/xinetd.d/vsftpd to accept FTP from any location (or preferably just computers on the same subnet), but I am not sure exactly how to do this (or even if this is what I need to do).
Thanks for all the help. Great suggestions! I looked into the iptables thing and found out tcp and udp is blocked from everywhere except my local DNS. So, I make an exception for incoming tcp and udp to be accepted for the IP address of the NT machine. Then did:
iptables-save -c > /etc/sysconfig/iptables
Unfortunately, FTP still doesn't work. I know the requests are being sent because I can see the counts going up for the NT machine's IP address when I do
iptables -L -v
Grrrrrrr. I'll look into it more on Monday and keep this thread updated as I go along.
