I have made a lan here consisting of 2 computers both running Redhat 9.0. They are both connected to a Netgear switch/router. They both have access to the net with their ip's assigned using dhcp. Each machine can ping the other. But I cannot connect the two by ftp or telnet. I want to get these working before I use ssh.
The services are installed in
However, when I run setup to aallow trusterd devices and ports the settings are not saved. Hence the machines ping each other but I cannot ftp. Can anyone help?
Also, the router assigns each ethernet card a lan ip. May I use these so external machines can see me. This is because I eventually want to cross-mount with machines at work. Otherwise I am going to not specify my ip in the /etc/exports file in the server at work.
