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. First of all, thank you for your help. Without LQ, I would probably half lost on what to do with all my other problems.
Ok, heres what I have!
And this is what I want!
I want my server to act as an SSH tunnel, a VPN and FTP server. I want ALL connections to be encrypted.
Right now I have the SSH tunnel working (to an extent), PopTop is installed and I have Pure-FTP and VSFTP.
For my SSH tunnel to be perfect, I would like to install a socks proxy instead of using BitVise Tunnelier all the time.
I can connect to the VPN (poptop) but the VPN isnt connected to the internet.
I would prefer to use Pure-FTP but I dont know how to make Pure-FTP create and FTP account with every Linux User account. I also want all, and I mean ALL ftp trafic to be encrypted. I also need to enable server to server transfer (FXP), but i think i have already set that up. Right now I have configured VSFTP to do all of this but i dont know hwo to force encryption... If anyones knows, please help..
