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 installed Ubuntu Server 9.10, and started configuring it. Changed my SSH port to a more secure one, etc etc. The primary account I'm using right now (yes I know it's not advisable but I get tired of typing "sudo" every time I wish to make a change) is the root. I can use FileZilla and quick connect to the root account at the IP address with that port. However, I went to http://www.the-web-book.com/build-yo...webserver.html and started following the directions for the FTP section. I created the account (though not named webuser1), configured my shell, etc, etc. However, while I can ftp and ssh my root account, I cannot SSH or FTP into my created users account(If I recall correctly, I shouldn't be able to SSH, which is great!) However, I need to set it up correctly for web users to have their own accounts... however every time I attempt to connect to that account (quick connect) with that I IP (sftp://IP here) it closes out with a "connection closed by server error code 1". Any help? Thanks!
