Linux WS9 can't connect to the Internet.
Posted on 2004-10-28
Hail and well met, I have a linux problem. I just recently moved office. Everything is up and running except for our Linux box. Linux WS9. I appologies now for my lack of knoledge in Linux. We use a static IP (Which works when inputed in a windows box) but I cant seem to get the Linux box back online.
I did some reading and I was asked to do a ipconfig (ifconfig), I did and it seems like its up, I see a UP BROADCAST in there. I have looked at the DNS entry and it is correct, basically no settings were changed since the move and the ISP didnt change anything so in theory I should be up and running.
Cant Ping or tracert
Can ping 126.96.36.199 and the static IP the box is using.
Please help, im loosing my mind :)
