Linux on a Windows 2000 network

Greetings,

I have a (pure) win 2000 domain named "fuqua".

I installed Corel Linux on 1 machine and added the Samba Client (smbclient).
The
Samba Server was already there, I configured it: local master=no, WINS=no,
Printers=no Workgroup=fuqua.

The Linux box has a fixed IP (192.168.1.18 Mask=255.255.255.0).
The windows machines are all (192.168.1.xxx Mask=255.255.255.0).

I can't ping the Windows machines, Windows machines can't ping Linux.
the light on the hub says the Linux NIC is connected... the lights on the
Linux NIC say it is sending...
The hardware worked under Win2000 last week.

I assume I can ping Linux to Windows... right?

Any thoughts?

</charlie>

Ping usually does not have problems with different operating systems. I would
rather  check the routing... Try traceroute on the linux machine to see where
your packets go. You still might have a hardware problem too.

If you can't ping, you've got problems that will likely prevent any
networking.  You should be able to ping any host, Windows or not.  Try a
couple of quick tests. 1) ping 127.0.0.1 2) ping your IP address.  These
will indicate if there's a problem within your computer.  Then try
pinging any address, while observing the LEDs on both the NIC and hub,
to see if your computer is actually sending something.  After all this,
you should have some indication as to where the problem lies.

Yep, this is true.  If possible can you show us what the output of your
ifconfig command and /sbin/route -n command is.  I suspect that Linux wasn't
able to detect your network card correctly.  Additionally, make sure that you
disabled the PnP OS Installed on your BIOS.  Is the network card inside the
Linux box a ISA or PCI ?

See ya
