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 am having trouble setting up the IP address on my new server. I go to system>network connections. I add a new connection, I then go to the IPv4. Change method to manual. Setup my address, and Netmask to the same as another machine I have. The address is different than the other machine. and set the gateway to the same as the other machine. The results is I cannot use firefox, but I can ping my other machine from the new box. I not sure why firefox will not work?
If this is an internal LAN (as it sounds) you should only use IPs in the approved private ranges https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_network.
As above, 172.168.x.x would be an external address range already owned by someone else.
I have worked on my system today, and found that the IP address did not matter, but I now set to the standard. I found a switch in Red Hat 6 that needed to be set to server and not desktop in the firewall. I am now up and running.
