Help! can't Network!

Post by Drewbi » Mon, 17 Apr 2000 04:00:00



I'm Trying to network a win2k Pro machine (192.168.1.20)
with a newly installed Red Hat 6.0 machine (192.168.1.24)
but they can't even PING each other onthe network. From each
machine I can ping the loopback address and it's own local
IP address. I am using soho 10/100 nic cards
with a soho 10/100 hub. This hardware setup worked fine when it
was win2K and win98 (192.168.1.15) networked together. The
output from my ifconfig eth0 reads:

        Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:80:C6:F9:FA:B2
        inet addr: 192.168.1.24 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask 255.255.255.0
        UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 METRIC:1
        RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
        collisions:0 rxqueuelen:100
        Interrupt:10 Base address:0xe400

 Output from the route command on the linux box reads:

DEST            GW      MASK            FLGS    met ref use      ifc
192.168.1.24    *       255.255.255.255 UH      0     0    0     eth0
192.168.1.0     *       255.255.255.0   U       0     0    0     eth0
127.0.0.0       *       255.255.255.0   U       0     0    0     lo

One weird thing though, when I try to ping the linux box from the
Windoze box the light on the hub flickers but when I try to ping the
Windoze box from the Linux box on the hub does not flicker.

Can anyone please help?

those two look ok,
so try the hardware approach -
replugin the cables, maybe to another port on the hub....

also try tcpdump on one console while pinging on the other.
should list some questions for macadress
(who has (linuxbox) tell (windowsbox),
maybe if you're lucky some answers...((linux) is at (hardwareadress)))
and some questions for icmp-reply.

compare what you see to what you when you ping viceversa
