I'm setting up a small LAN for an ISP. We have 2 servers, one is
a pentium the other a pentium pro, both running Linux. The Ppro is
set up to be a 2ndary DNS server (the primary and another 2ndary are
I have them both on a 10baseT ethernet. I can ping either machine
from the other and from the pentium, but not the Ppro, I can ping
the router. However, if I try to use a inet service (telnet, ftp)
I cannot connect. The service just times out after a while.
Inetd is running on both machines and both machines can telnet
to themselves using either localhost or their names.
So, why can't I telnet from machine to machine?
Any ideas/thoughts/stabs in the dark are welcome!
