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 trying to connect from my work to my home pc (red hat 8.0 fresh install). My work has a firewall, and I have changed the port in /etc/services to 23 (telnet has also been changed to another port so that port is not bieng used by anything else). I have ran xinetd, and shhd after i made the changes. But when I try to connect from my work to that port, I cannot connect. I'm logged in through telnet from my work, and can see sshd running. There is no firewall software running. Any thoughts?
Any particular error messages or does it just timeout ? You most likely need to change the port in the /etc/ssh/sshd_config as well and then restart the ssh services for it to start working on port 23 instead of 22.
ok changed that and closed sshd, and ssh-agent, and then ran them both. I also ran xinetd from /usr/sbin (thats also were i ran the other 2 programs from) but it still gets a connection failed, time out error. Am I missing any programs to run?
If you can't connect to localhost via ssh, then you may want to investigate that first; the firewall may not be a problem at all. If it is a firewall issue, ssh doesn't have anything to do with it if it's your work's firewall (ie not a software firewall running on the same machine as sshd)
Well. I had my telnet set to 23, and could connect from work to home, so I know port 23 is not blocked on the company firewall. And now I have changed telnet to another port that works, and set ssh to 23, and I have no luck. So could I just kill a firewall app? And if so what is the name of the app
