[Fedora 15] Learning Linux ....


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if I've posted this in the right section, so apologies if I haven't ;)

I'm currently trying to delve more into the world of Linux and looking to build

myself a server based on Fedora 15. This will be for now a virtual PC created

using Virtual Box.

Last night I created the said virtual PC and installed Fedora 15. This was done

by the boot from the Live CD and choosing Install to Hard Drive. I installed

Virtual Box Additions and everything appears to be working as expected.

I also installed Apache, MySql, PHP and PHPMyAdmin too, I can browse the test

page, access PHPMyAdmin from with the Fedora PC, but not using the Host PC and

I'm not sure why this is. I can ping the Virtual PC from my Host PC without issue.

Any pointers?

Check the firewall settings, port 80 might be blocked.

Is your Apache server "online" or just enabled for local testing? ;)

Thanks guys, I did have a look at the firewall and got completely lost :s

So I've took a completely different root. I am now using a netbook instead of a virtual PC and couldn't get Fedora 15 to install using a USB Stick, so I've installed Ubuntu 11.04 and have that working ok along with apache!

Has anyone got any links to websites that cover iptables under Ubuntu 11.04? Can't seem to get my head round it and need some guidance!

Iptables works the same on every distro, more so if you control them through the command line:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo (the basics).

http://www.frozentux.net/iptables-tutorial/iptables-tutorial.html (this one is a bit tough to chew).

Frontends like ufw or firestarter just add some extra tables to organize their sets of rules, but those still follow the iptables syntax.
