PINGing over CISCO Routers

Post by Dave Gre » Sun, 23 Apr 1995 04:00:00



We have a local LAN with a HP9000 E25 and HP9000 G30 attached. We use
CISCO Routers to connect to a remote LAN which has a HP9000 H40. We can
PING all remote IP addresses (i.e. File Server, workstations etc)
from the local LAN except the HP9000 H40. Is there anything I've missed
on the config of the remote HP9000 ?. I'm assuming it is the HP9000 due
to the fact I can PING everthing else !
Thanks in advance

Check the "default gateway" on the node you cannot ping. I recently
found the same problems with a workstation and some x-terms. Because
there was no default gateway defined on them they couldn't send the
ping response back off of their own LAN segment.

You need to add a   ROUTE ADD command to your netlinkrc file in /etc
directory.  The command is there in comment form.  You  need to specify
the remote network and the ip address of the gateway (the ethernet
address of the cisco router).  The command can be done manually for
testing.

You will need to do this for each HP machine since they do static
routing not dynamic.
