I'm trying to connect Linux box to an SCO server. We are going
through an NE2000, if that matteres. When I look at dmesg, all
everything is correct for the NE2000 (according to the people that are
taking windows boxes and tying it to the same network.
I've looked through the doc's, and a book called the Linux
Administrators Guide, and varous HOWTO's..and I still get the same
route doesn't match the netmask.
<or is it vice versus...knew I should have written that down!!>
The SCO box doesn't have anything like DNS or even a name, it just has
numbers, as follows, from the administrator:
My machine is supposed to be:
220.127.116.11 <desk 8 in building 200, computer nest to me is 107 etc>
The SCO machine is supposed to be:
The Broadcast address is supposed to be:
And the netmask is supposed to be:
THAT's it..... they are getting some windows program to be able to
telnet to the sco machine, but unfortunately, I cannot get any help
from the SCO admin, even though a whole class is using Linux.
The response is " It's not a commercial unix. ''
My last attempt was to follow EXACTLY the steps that were outlined in
the Installation Guide <after the Admin guide didn't seem to help me>,
and the result was the same.
All the documentation seems to vary from the information that I'm
given in that the server ends in xxx.xxx.xxx.0 instead of
xxx.xxx.xxx.1, and that there are names for the server and the
machines on the network.
If anyone can point out to me just where I'm making my mistake, I
would greatly appreciate it.
