Can't ping my Fedora 4 default gateway
Posted on 2006-03-27
This is my first posting so please excuse any bad etiquette.
Issue: I'm having a problem pinging my gateway after moving my Fedora 4 box to a different subnet. I was careful to make sure that I entered in the correct addresses and updated the right network files. Mind you the system worked fine in the other subnet and initially worked on the new subnet. However, after I rebooted, network connectivity ceased. I have also removed the the firewall as a potential problem by temporarily disabling it. I would love to know what I may have screwed up or changed that could be causing me this headache.
Question??: Looking at the files/configuration below, can you tell me what could be the source of my problem?
Any sugestions or ideas are greatly appreciated.
My configuration is as follows:
The /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file looks like the following:
The /etc/sysconfig/network file looks like the following:
arp -a returns nothing
tcpdump -nn for port 53 give me...
