Hi. Can anyone help?
I am trying to connect a mandrake 8 Pc to a windows 2000 professional Pc. I had a connection between thses two machines when I ran mandrake 7 but since upgrading the connection is lost. I have a 4 port ethernet hub connecting the two machines. If I ping the windows machine from Linux both ports show activity. If I ping the windows pc from Linux with an incorrect IP address, only the Linux port shows activity.Also if I ping Linux from Windows with the correct IP addresses only the windows port shows activity. Confused!
It seems that the Windows machine is receiving packets from Linux, but Linux is not recieving packets from Windows.
eth0 = 3c509 card
ip address 192.168.0.1
Linux route table...
dest gateway genmask iface
192.168.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 eth0
127.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 lo
0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 eth0
ip address 192.168.0.2
The linux machine is dual boot with win 2000 server and the win 2000 network works fine so that I assume that eliminates any hardware problems.
I have no ipchains, or firewall installed and have included the windows ip address in the hosts.allow file
Any help would be greatly appreciated
