Assuming the Unix host is on the same physical network network as the Windows systems, and the IP address is in the the range for your subnet...

Can you ping localhost? (=> networking is installed correctly)
Can you ping your own IP address? (=> Unix can see the hub => and gets responses)
If "yes", it's a routing problem - You'll need to set a gateway  (`man route`) and/or change the subnet mask.

Some more info on your network layout would help...

Windows naming services is not official standard of any kind, so do not expect UNIX machine to know your user-sustomized window-preinstalled machine names.

In addition to the above you will need to make sure that your subnet mask and broadcast addresses are set correctly on your unix host.  Many times these get overlooked.

Good luck.
