Hi,
I'm running RH6.1 on an i386, with 2 PCI
ethernet NICs, and MASQ'uing a win98 box.
Weirdly my IP_MASQ is working fine, but what is strange to me is that i can not ping the win98 box (192.168.1.2) from eth1 (192.162.1.1) and also i can not FTP from the win98 box to the linux box. Win98 can ping to the outside, eth0 can ping to the outside. Again browsing, FTP to others, ICQ work fine on the win box. So...would anyone have any ideea what's goin on?

Thnx, Radu
PS. i'm using a crossover instead of a hub since im only masquing 1 box.

Assuming that you are pinging by IP, check the netmasks on both eth1 and the win98 box to see if they agree. Also check the routing tables to make sure that Linux knows that the 192.168.1.0 network is reachable via the eth1 interface. If you don't know how to interpret the output of "netstat -rn", post it and the output of "ifconfig -a". Or email it to jlevie@bellsouth.net if you don't want the your outside IP exposed in a public forum.
