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 getting this in my mail logs constantly, I these are things like logwatch ect. but I can't send them ever since I required SSL authentication for users to get mail, could someone help out on this one? I havn't the slightest idea what is wrong, I am new to sendmail/linux
I don't know much about sendmail either (I use qmail myself; much simpler to set up), but the error message you're getting is caused by not being able to make a connection to a particular port on the local computer.
There can be several causes for this:[list=1][*]A server isn't running that should be. Try
, then read the end of /var/log/messages[*]One of the port settings is wrong; e.g. POP3 runs on port 110 but POP3s on port 995. See the /etc/services file[*]A firewall is blocking the connection; check that the local machine is allowed to connect to all necessary ports in your firewall setup.[/list=1]
