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
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?
