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.

im trying to allow ssh connections to my slackbox through the router. i changed it to port 55, and im able to connect to the machine fine through the internal ip, but when i try to connect to the external ip on port 55 using ssh, it times out. ive added the internal router ip - 192.168.0.1 - to the hosts.allow file, but it still doesnt work. any suggestions ?
no, this is all through home. im just wondering which files i should look at, or anything special i have to do to enable outside connections. it should just show as connecting through 192.168.0.1 , right ?
of course it is.
the router setting is really very simple. and sshd on the slackbox works fine. im just wondering if theres any entries i have to make in order for it to accept connections from the router as opposed to from inside the network.
