NT and Linux box nextwork!
Posted on 1998-01-06
I have 2 machines at home. NT 4 workstation and linux. I have SMC ultra 16 network cards in both machines, connected properly. TCPDUMP on linux shows NT accessing the network, however I am unable to ping. TCPIP is set up, with ip's of 192.168.0.1 for linux and 192.168.0.2 for Windows NT. TCPDUMP shows that winNT is trying to find out the ARP for 192.168.0.1 (linux) or simply sends the packets no where. I know that my network is set up properly physically. Any ideas as to why I can't ping? I suspect its some sort of a bug under windows. I tried installing windows 98 beta I have, windows 95. Nothing. Same thing. Please help. I need this network
