Again with the "Destination Host Unreachable", more precise


I know that "Destination Host Unreachable" means that the system cannot find a route to the desired IP address. How can this happen when the IP address is on my local network ?
Eth1 is configured with address 192.168.0.1 and a Windows box directly connected that has 192.168.0.2 as an address. When I try to ping the Windows box it says "Destination Host Unreachable". Any ideeas ?

It's a crossover cable yeah?

It's not a faulty crossover cable?

Does it say the same when you try to ping from windows to linux?

This is the output from route :
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
193.226.83.128 * 255.255.255.128 U 0 0 0 eth0
192.168.0.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
127.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
default a-docsis-C51-83 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0

The cable is good, that is for sure, and the pinging dose'nt work eighter way. The strange part is that it says "Destination host unreachable". Normally it should say "Request timed out" if it is a faulty cable or something like this. I know that "Dest ..." means that it dose not know how to go there, witch is total non-sense !
