A while ago i posted here about a problem with motherboard halting on fdd check with clark connect. Well, that problem has gone away (I must find the post and mark it closed...). I have now switched to clearos and need to connect to the box from another pc to finish the install.
I duly set the following imformation with ifconfig:
ip address: 192.168.1.102
I then set the dns servers in /etc/resolv.conf (I presume this is right?)
I am able to ping the ip address from another computer on the network, and to ping that computer from the clearos box (plugged into the router) but i cannot view http://192.168.1.102:81
or any variation thereon.
the settings on this computer (ubuntu):
ip address 192.168.1.101
I have not tried to set the route as I am uncertain how to do it. Neither have i restarted network interfaces on the clearos box, as again I don't know how.
the router leases dhcp addresses between 192.168.1.100 and 192.168.1.199.
As far as I am aware, no firewall is running - i turned it off.
Apologies if i am being very stupid, but any ideas?
