network communication problem
Posted on 2003-02-22
My issue is that when I connect my two computers together (both linux, one being a router I'm "trying" to create) they cannot communicate at all. The way they're connected is that my DSL line goes into the router's first NIC and then the second NIC connects to my switch's uplink port and my personal computer is connected to the switch. When they're connected in this way they cannot see each other let alone communicate. However, if I connect both computers to the switch and put the DSL line into the uplink port they can see and talk to each other just fine. Any answer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
