"connect: No buffer space available" in my local network area


I'm running mandrake 10 and KDE 3.2.2.. I have a NIC (eth0) connected to a network ADSL modem and a virtual NI (eth0:1) connected to my Laptop win2000k..

this is my ifconfig:

I've been having some trouble for a few days:

Just After my linux box starts the network seems to work perfectly, but after some minutes, I can't reach my Laptop and my localhost.. I can see it:

ping localhost
connect: No buffer space available
ping 192.168.0.66 (my laptop)
connect: No buffer space available
ping 82.50.10.12 (my PPP0 address)
connect: No buffer space available

It's very strange, beacuse if I type...

ping google.com
PING google.com (216.239.57.99) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 216.239.57.99: icmp_seq=1 ttl=239 time=1679 ms
64 bytes from 216.239.57.99: icmp_seq=2 ttl=239 time=2191 ms

--- google.com ping statistics ---
3 packets transmitted, 2 received, 33% packet loss, time 5296ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 1679.156/1935.195/2191.234/256.039 ms, pipe 2

...My connection (browser, FTP etc) to "OUTSIDE" seems to work perfectly, but communications within my LAN don't work..

any idea?

can you check

1 routing tables (netstat -nr OR route -vn)
2 your firewall ... hope the local interface (lo) is not blocked. (iptables -nvL)

notice: I've a boot-script that allow ip forwarding to 2 LAN-IP: 192.168.0.99 (my laptop) and 192.168.0.66 (for friends that sometimes usa my LAN). My Linux is the gateway (192.168.0.1) with eth0:1 interface.

I don't understand very well this output, can you explain me it?

thanks a lot!

Beats me.

Can you try disabling this virtual interface.

#ifdown eth0:1

and try to ping localhost, your ppp IP and other sites.

You will not be able to ping your LAN (192.168.x.x). If you are able to ping to localhost, the ppp IP for extended period of time, we may assume that the virtual interface is creating this problem...

I tried (as root):

ifdown eth0:1

But I got:

Device "eth0:1" does not exist.

And I think it's not the problem... This configuration worked until a few days ago... Then I had a problem with some configuration file.. KDE didn't start because DCOP config in my home/user/ seemed to be disappeared! .. To solve this problem I've

cp home/usr2/.DCOP_server_myhost__0 /home/user/

After this, KDE started ok, But I don't know if this could be the problem: because my internet connection didn't start, in the meanwhile I worked around my network settings..

And, over all.. I don't know what DCOP is..

I have too many variables in this problem!!!
