Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Sorry if this question is a bit longer than it needs to be but....
I can ping local boxes, but I can't ping anything outside my LAN (on this one machine running RH 7.3). The machine was working before I switched ISPs and moved my office around. That said, nothing has changed on the machine - all the settings are the same. (The only changes I needed to make when switching ISPs were on the router).
I really don't know where to begin to look for a problem... I checked the gateway and name server settings in /etc/sysconfig/network and /etc/resolve.conf respectively. I can ssh into and out of it on my LAN, but cannot ssh into or out of it on the WAN. If I ping from the box, it resolves the name, but doesn't connect.... I suppose the ip & name could be cached somewhere in the machine (I'm not sure how that works) - but if I "ping yahoo.com" it gives back the correct IP address for yahoo.com, but gives "Destination Host Unreachable"
It should be noted that the machine in question has two NICs - one built into the motherboard (that stopped working a few weeks ago... well, it would work intermittently) and a replacement PCI card that *has* worked properly in the machine we're dealing with here. Both cards are set to the same IP. I have not officially disabled the "broken" card... maybe that's the problem? If so, how would I go about disabling the motherboard NIC?
Originally posted by uglydot To disable the NIC, try going into your bios, there should be a place like "integrated peripherals" or some such. Find your NIC on the list and disable it.
well, I rebooted to do that & the machine wouldn't even post. Removed the NIC and it did (post), so I replaced it with a new one, disabled the onboard LAN, and everything seems to be up and running again.
