ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

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.

This shows my the local as 127.0.0.1 so I really have no idea what is wrong. Any help on this would be appreciated. Thanks

127.0.0.2 linux.site home$
this is from netstat -r
link-local * 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
loopback * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
Instead of INADDR_ANY, you can specify an address (as long int), in which case the server only listens to request on the interface with the specified address.
I'm not sure why you have a problem. Your result of netstat -r is the same for the loopback device as on my system.
What does ifconfig give you? There should be a lo interface with address 127.0.0.1
What is the result of a ping localhost?
Thanks for the replies on this matter, but the error was due to a coding mistake when trying to port from windows to linux.
Can anybody tell me if there is a free remote cvs service, so that i can log files out from within windows and linux with ease.
I know of sourceforge, but the project doesn't meet the required licence. I want the project executables to be freely available to the general public but not to companies and neither to have the source. I don't even know what licence this should be!
I'm not that familiar with CVS but you should be able to setup CVS on a Linux box and access it from both the Linux machine as well as from the Windows machine.
I'm quite sure that my RH8 box came with CVS installed, not sure about my Slack box.
