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 a ftp server behind a load balancing firewall. When I have the ftp server infront of the firewall then I don't have any problems connecting to it from a work station. When I have the ftp server behind the firewall I get this error:
connection refused; the server would not accept an FTP connection
I know the connection from the client is getting to the ftp server behind the firewall as I can see it when I am listening from the ftp server on port 21.
Is it possible that it is trying to connect via some other method that is not getting through the firewall that is not on port 21.
Here is the whole printout of the transaction between the client and the server.
