I did have the internet working
Hello all first some background.
I've got mandrake 8.2 up and running i'm long time microsoft guy so i'm very very new to the linux OS. I"ve done just a ton of read to figure things out. I'm trying to get the aphache server working with virtual hosts. This is where the prob started i read all the threads on this site that might have the slightest thing to do with Vhost. My linux box always worked for the internet untill i stopped and started the apache server yesturday. Now i can ping out, use the internet, other machines on my small network cant ping the linux box and i have no idea where to start and trouble shoot this thing.
I've got a static ip 192.168.1.88 behind a linksys router/hub. Im using that for my firewall. Now other machines on the network can get out fine so it not the router. The computer with linux on it is a dual boot so i fired up winNT to check and see if its the nic card. Everything works fine using winNT. I booted back to mandrake, still nothing.
Now can one of you nice folks point in the right direction for some trouble shooting please.
Thanx all in advance.
