Linux machines cant ping server..Windows can.
My current problem involves the machines running on linux as clients in my network. I have configured my linux server to act as a DHCP, DNS, and samba server. I have successfully been able to have the DHCP assign addresses to any clients asking for an address. I have also been able to use a properly configured DNS.(I am able to ping the hostname). I also am able to make shares available to clients from samba. All of this works on Windows clients.
The only thing that works is on linux client machines is receiving an IP address and a hostname from the server. When i get to the graphical login screen and try to ping it, I am told that the network is unreachable. This happens on all of the linux client machines in my network. I dont understand why I am unable to ping the server if i can receive an address from the server.
By the way i am using Suse linux 9.0 on both my client and server machines.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
