I am using Linux-Manddrake 6.1. I have bootp setup which I am using to gather the gateway,dns,netmask but I set a static ip to my machine in my hosts file. I can get out from the linux box to the internet and to the local machines but I can't get back in. When ever I try to ping my linux box from an other computer on the network it just sits there nothing comes in. When I tried to do a smbclient -L on my linux box it queryed my machine but then said no route to host??
