I'm way new to the unix world.... all of my previous forays into the linux world have been playing with the GUI and very basic commands (ifup, dir, cd, rm, etc). Recently, however, I began a project to configure and run my own web/ftp server to host some school files for our speech and debate team.
I followed the tutorial, and the web server seems to work fine (http://murthy.hopto.org
displays my test index.html). I can also ping the server and it responds fine. The only problem I'm having is that I cannot Telnet, SSH, or ftp into the server. PLEASE help me fix this issue, it would really help me and my school out.
BTW I think it's amazing that all the people in the Linux world seem to be extremely helpful. If the webserver works out in the end, I'm seriously thinking about switching to some distro of linux for my laptop.
