Odd network unreachable problem

Odd network unreachable problem

Post by Andy Burge » Sun, 25 Dec 1994 05:33:29



I'm trying to set up a newsfeed to nntp.hk.super.net. I can ping him
just fine. telnet loses with network unreachable. However from my Sun box
(which is the default route for my linux box) I can telnet just fine.
He can telnet to my linux box fine! Traceroute shows different paths
(see appendix).

The mystery for me is that if he can telnet to me, my machine is sending
responses to his machine. Its only when I initiate the telnet that it fails.

This is 1.1.65 for me, 1.1.73 for him.
I have a dozen other newsfeeds working fine. So does he!

Can _your_ linux box telnet to nntp.hk.super.net?

Any ideas?
Thanks alot and merry xmas.
Andy

1. Network setup problem with Redhat 6.1 -- "network unreachable"

I am having a problem getting my linux computer networked with my other
computers on my small network. While my other computers can ping each
other through tcp/ip, the linux box cannot ping the ip addresses of the
other computers, nor can they ping the linux box.

Setup:
    2 PCs running Win98
    1 PC running Redhat Linux 6.1
    Linux PC using LINKSYS EtherPCI LAN
    1 LINKSYS 5 port Hub
    file: conf.modules reads "alias eth0 ne2k-pci" (setup by Redhat
software upon discovering new hardware)

Symptoms:
1. Linux PC can ping itself, and it appears that the network card my be
setup properly (no error messages on loading).
2. When the Linux PC attempts to ping the other computers, it reports
that the network is unreachable.
3. The other computers can ping each other, but not the Linux PC.

Question:
1. How can I confirm that the Linux PC network setup is working from the
Linux box?
2. Should any computer that is setup for tcp/ip on the hub be able to
ping the other?
3. What is a good simple setup for IP addresses, DNS, etc.,  for a local
network?

Thanks, in advance.
