Ping from Linux to Win95

I have installed Suse Linux 4.4.1 with Cernel 2.0.29.
I also installed a samba server. When I test it with
smbclient -L hostname it is working fine, so the TCP/IP prototocol should be ok. On another machine I installed
Win95 with TCP/IP. But when I try "Ping" from Linux I get no answer. The ethernet cards are ok, also the cabel.

What could be the reason?

No, I have only 2 PC's. So I cannot ping to another machine, because I have only one Linux and one Win95 PC.

The other way round - ping from Win95 to Linux - doesn't work either.

You either have a routing problem, or the WIN95 machine isn't set up correctly. What are the IP-adresses of the two machines, and what does the 'route' command say?

In the W95 machine go to "Start >> Settings >> Control Panel >> Network"

There check that you have the next network components:
-The adpater of your network card(in Properties check there is a Binding to TCP/IP protocol).
-TCP/IP protocol.

If you have both then right click in "My Computer" and go to "Properties>>Device Manager", here check again that your network card exists, if it does not then try telling W95 to recognize it without let it autodetect; if it is there then double click on it and in the new window go to "Resources", here you can check if there is no conflict with other device. In "Device manager" you can also highlight "Computer" and select Properties, then you can check alll the IRQs, DMAs, etc for conflicts.

   In the Linux machine you have to be sure your network card is detected, during the booting procedure one message should state that your network card has been detected, if you don't ses anything or the scrolling is to fast, go to /usr/adm and check the file "messages", if your network card was recognized it should be stated here, if not, you have homework to do reading the HowTo about network cards.

  You don't mention if you have a hub, if you are connecting both machines directly then you should use a crossover cable.

  I hope this info helps.
