I installed RHEL 5.6 on my system.  I am trying to configure the network adapter

I configured the network adapter through XWindows using
the following procedure:

    - Select DNS tab, enter the following:

      Hostname:         h_one
      Primary DNS:      10.14.10.10
      DNS Search path:  xxx.xxx.com  (Cant reveal this, but
                                      it always works in 
                                      previous installations)

    - Select Devices Tab, Choose your ethernet adapter, and
                      enter the following:
      Address:          10.14.50.12
      Subnet Mask:      255.255.0.0
      Default Gateway:  10.14.10.10

Open in new window


Then I deactivate and activate the adapter.  It comes up
correctly as active.

Then I CAN ping the adapter:from within the RHEL server terminal on XWindows:

ping 10.14.50.12
PING 10.14.50.12 (10.14.50.12) 56(84) bytes of data
64 bytes from 10.14.50.12: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.027 ms
64 bytes from 10.14.50.12: icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.027 ms

Open in new window


Then I ping the DNS, but can not get to it

ping 10.14.10.10
connect: Network is unreachable

Open in new window

Nor can I get to common addresses on my network:

ping 10.14.100.2
connect: Network is unreachable

Open in new window


From my clients, I try to ping the new server, but get the following:

ping 10.14.50.12
Pinging 10.14.50.12 with 32 bytes of data:
Request timed out.

Open in new window


Can anyone give me any advice on this.  What seems to be the problem ?

Default Gateway:  10.14.10.10

Are you sure the default gateway is correct?

If the gateway ip is correct, then try to change the cable.

Are you sure that the other machines and the gateway use the same netmask 255.255.0.0?

The ifconfig did the trick.  I had transposed the mask and the gateway values

I can not ping out of the box, and can also putty in

Thanks

So the mask was the culprit?
