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.

my /etc/selinux/config is saying "SELINUX=Permissive" & "SELINUXTYPE=targeted".
The firewall is "Enabled".
for the network 10.152.0.0 i have a GATEWAY=10.152.16.33,which i am able to ping from my machine i.e. 10.152.16.35.
The necessary dns entries in /etc/resolve.conf are made.
The proxy server is configured at another office having ip "10.152.3.10". which i am not able to ping from machine. In browser, i have entered the proxy address and the necessary port also. The pinging results in "connect:Network is unreachable".
If i am trying to connect to any site from browser, i am getting message "The Proxy server is refusing connections."
But if i am assigning the ip "10.152.16.36" to another machine having FC5 as OS then the browsing goes on smoothly. What will be the problem?
My guess is that the firewall is blocking the requests. You should either disable the firewall (unsafe depending on the situation) or configure it to at least allow traffic on port 80; incoming from your internal network and outgoing to wherever you need to go (probably 10.152.3.10?). Also make sure that your routes are set correctly (you can see them with the command 'route').
