I'm pretty new to linux, and I have just been able to set up an server at home(using an old P200 computer). The ftp ond http works fine on the server but i can't connect to the server from an other computer in my network. Why? just ask if you need more info about my system...

If I understand correctly, you are able to connect to ftp/http from the linux box itself?

If so, read the manual for hosts.allow and edit /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny if necessary.

Also check if you are not running a firewall by running iptables -L (for kernels 2.4.x) or ipchains -L (for kernels 2.2.x). Post the output here if you don't know what to do with it.

Oh, and I almost forgot: what kind of message do you get when you try to connect? Simply connection refused or something else?

Thanks for the reply.

Yes I'm able to connect to ftp and http from the server, but not outside.
I'l check out the config files.

Don't think I have any firewall because when I installed RH7.2 I choosed to not install a firewall....

Try to ping a computer from your server.

There can be many reasons, from hardware problems (nics, cables etc) to software ones(is your nic conifigured? use ifconfig and see if there's 'eth0', if not use ifconfig eth0 your_ip_here)

Never mind the qustion. I solved it my self. I set the IP's my self and they where 192.168.0.1-4 but then I changed them to 192.168.1.1-4 and then it worked, Why did it work with ..1. and not ..0.?

Hmm, maybe there was a simple, small thing wrong and when reconfiguring you set it right?
