Peer to peer network with two machines, ping doesn't work

Peer to peer network with two machines, ping doesn't work

Post by linuxquest.. » Mon, 02 Feb 2004 14:28:26



Dear experts,

I'm trying to get my two Redhat machines to talk to each other.

They are configured with static IP addresses:

10.0.0.1                red.testrac.com         red
10.0.0.2                white.testrac.com       white

No DHCP.  I also don't have DNS running anywhere.

I thought that the hosts file could substitute for DNS.
But neither machine can find (ping) the other one.  

I'll include output from files, and commands.  
What am I missing here?  

Thanks a lot

You say "peer to peer" network.. Do you mean machine to machine directly?
Perhaps you need a crossover cable, while you are using regular ethernet
cabling.

As for using /etc/hosts, yes this can substitute for DNS.  The reason that
"host" fails, is because it attempts to talk to your DNS server directly,
rather than calling gethostbyname().

The eth0 interfaces on both machines do not show "RUNNING" in the ifconfig
output, which, as you can see, is present for the lo interface.  It's a
good bet that is why no communication is possible.

Although I really don't know what the missing RUNNING specifically implies,
my *guess* would be that the cards are not correctly configured for the
hardware.

Yes, this is the case.  What is the difference/advantage of using a
crossover cable?

Do you know how I could get it work then?

Here's a question.  I noted on the web, that when another user got
his network working, he had
IPADDR:     10.192.8.50
Gateway:    10.192.8.1

I noted that the first three digits of the IP were the same.  
Do you think that it is important?  

Also, can you others ping your gateway?  I can't.  

Thanks

So, you get RUNNING, on your eth0 output?

I think that they are configured well enough.  There were no drivers
before, and I installed them.

You need a regular cable for nic to hub/switch/router/cable modem.

You need a crossover when you go from nic to nic.
The crossover cable crosses tx wires to connect to rx and rx to tx
pins.

Yes.

A cable directly connecting (no hub or switch) the Ethernet cards of
two hosts together must a crossover cable.  See the Ethernet HOWTO
in the "Twisted Pair" section for more on crossover cables.

The HWaddr says the NICs are Intel ones. Which model?

Which driver did you install? What is the output of the command lsmod?

I bought a crossover cable and it worked!
Thanks to you and Bit Twister.  Thank you.

ifconfig now shows the eth0 RUNNING also.

If you are using TwistedPair cabling, you either have to connect the
systems using a hub or a switch (preferred), or by directly connecting
the two systems with a crossover cable. Otherwise, the wiring is incorrect.

Not for your actual problem. That's just a smaller network,
spanning less machines than yours. If you want to learn about
IP addressing schemes, start with reading RFC1878.

1. Samba won't work with win98 peer-peer network!!!

I'm a newbie to Linux (Redhat 6.1) and I can't get Samba to work with my
existing win98. I have:
installed samba.
1. Made sure it was running using <samba status> command.
2. Pinged the network. It was working fine.
What else do I have to do before it works? If someone can give me a rough
check list of sorts to start with, I will be very grateful.

Thanks to all who reply :)
