Need some more resources.

I have got a basic understanding of ssh, sshd, and httpd and local IP addresses, and now I would like to begin looking into how IP/mac addresses are used to connect outside of the local network.

I have read quite a bit, but none of it ever worked. So I am just wondering what resources that the experts might know that explains it a bit better.

I found the part at aboutdebian to be pretty good at explaining networking.

The commands and setup stuff are all debian specific, but there's a lot of general technical knowledge that applies across the board. The networking section is certainly one of those.

Thanks. Am reading through it now.

Out of curiosity, what does Private IP Adress mean in the Virtual Servers Firewall configuration settings?

Does it mean, the Private IP is where port ## will be routed to?
