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 have been using Webmin 1.180 on an old HP Pavillion that has Redhat 9.0 installed with a 2.4.x kernel. On a newer server machine, I tried to install Fedora Core 3 on the server and it works just fine. I installed webmin 1.180 on it and it says that it installs fine, but when I type in the address of the server (for example https://192.168.5.24:10000/) my browser says that there was a timeout. When I type in the address https://192.168.5.23:10000/ for my other server, the login screen comes up. I am trying to access the server from a remot e machine on my network. How can I get Webmin working on Fedora 3? Is there a problem with the 2.6.x kernel?
I have the server setup using the server configuration and lynx isnt installed so I am unable to tell if it is showing up locally. Is there something that I can do to the firewall in order to test if that is the problem?
There are 7 machines on the network. I can log into the Red Hat 9 Server from any of the machines but I cannot on the Fedora one. On the Fedora Server, I do not have X, KDE, or Gnome installed; everything is from the command line (i thought it would make things run quicker).
Ive reinstalled Fedora 4 times and have gotten the same result each time. I have tried using Webmin 1.170 and 1.180 both and have gotten the same problem each time; even though the program tells me that it installed successfully. I cannot seem to get port 80 to display anything as well so I dont know what is the issue here. Im lost . . .
Also, I forgot to note, the Redhat version doesnt have a GUI either, everything runs from the command line. I have a mixture of Win2k and WinXP machines on the network and I have used both Mozilla, Firefox, and IE to test and they all have given the same results. The server request times out after a while.
Fedora has a nice firewall tool from the command: system-config-securitylevel . There is also the legacy tool called setup .
They allow you to decide what is allowed or not. On a completely local network which is already behind a firewall, you may even disable the firewall for the FC3 box and see if that helps.
That did work by shutting off the firewall. I will be placing this box in my DMZ later so eventually, im going to have to turn the firewall back on. I just used the system-config-securitylevel tool again to open port 10000 on the server and retested it out and it now works behind the firewall. Thanks again for the tools you mentioned. I never knew system-config-securitylevel or the setup program existed!!! I really appreciate your help with this issue!!
