SGI O2 & WinNT4 together

Has anybody been successful in networking a SGI O2 system with a PC running WinNt4 workstation through TCP/IP?  Can't even get a successful ping status yet, cabling/hub OK since SGI can ping to a HP plotter with JetDirect and PC's can ping to plotter through same cabling/hub.

Any tips/suggestions would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Steve

Could you please more specific?
What happens when you ping from either mashine to the other?

Here are a few things to check:

1.  Are both boxes using the same subnet mask?

2.  Are both boxes on the same subnet?

3.  Does each box have only one network card?  If more than one, is the cable plugged into the right one?  I spent half a day on a problem like this, and someone had moved the cable to the wrong card!

4.  If you're using the host name to ping, try using the IP address instead.

Hope this helps.  Good luck.
