Hi All

I just install a new Redhat 9 server, but I cant ping it from any workstations. I'm very new to this so be easy, here is what I have.

etc/sysconfig/network looks like this:

NETWORKING=yes
HOSTNAME=mydomain.com
GATEWAY=192.168.1.1     <-- My routers IP address
GATEWAYDEV=eth0


etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file looks like this:


DEVICE=eth0
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=static
IPADDRESS=192.168.1.50      <-- The IP I want the RH9 box to have
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
GATEWAY=192.168.1.1

/etc/hosts

127.0.0.1     localhost.localdomain localhost
192.168.1.50  mydomain.com mydomian

and /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 to:

DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static
BROADCAST=192.168.1.255
IPADDR=192.168.1.50
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=192.168.1.0
ONBOOT=yes
