Something else is wrong....
I changed the ip on my box to a static one, (192.168.1.166)
On my box, i can ping/ssh into it with no problem
But on the other computers on my network, now I can't ping or ssh, i guess this is a deepr problem :P
Is there something obvious I'm missing?
I have a firewall which is supposed to let ssh through, but it times out even with it off.. anyway ping should still work...
so now that i switched to a static ip for my linux box, i can't ping it with the windows computers on the network!!
Please help, i can't find this problem anywhere......
Note, i CAN connect to the internet, and i CAN ping the windows boxes, its like they just can't see me!
I have tried it with the firewall off, as well, the command for that is
If this helps, this is the output of ifconfig -a

wohoo! i fixed it!
everything was set up ok, my firewall was being a bitch
so i turned it off, and it works
but i need a new firewall
I'm having such terrible luck with guarddo,g and i had bad luck with firestarter too..
Can someone post a good basic firewall script
I need ssh access obviously, http and IM clients and stuff
but not webserver stuff etc
