Ms Rocks!!


Did that get your attention? Good, because I really need some help here .

Ok, I am configuring a dual P3 webserver (Redhat Linux) and I have it connected to a 1000MB eth1 to a D-Link 5 port switch via Cat6.

I have the link light, I have the firewall off, but no matter what I try it won't connect.

Here is a pic of my setup:

Now, if I connect the server to the Netgear Wireless router directly (CAT5), it connects without a problem. But when ever I try to make it connect using the setup shown above, it can't connect and gives me the following error:

Quote:
Determining IP information for eth1...PING 192.168.0.1 (192.168.0.1) 56(84) bytes of data.

--- 192.168.0.1 ping statistics ---

, pipe 4

Thanks in advance for any help.

Are both the D-Link and the netgear "switch/routers" ?

The D-Link is just a switch, the Netgear is just a router.

Well, I beleive that's your prob, you need a router right after the cable modem. Of course the cable modem connection plugs into the "WAN" port on the router.

Code:
                  [cable modem]       
                        |
                        |
                       \|/
                  [Some Router]
                   |        |
              [server]    [computer]

Nice picture - but he's correct, you need a router splitting the Cox connection. The reason is this - your cable company probably limits you to 1 ip address (check your EULA). Well, if the switch is allowing concurrent connections without subnetting it, it's allowing the use of more than 1 global IP - can't (well, can, but Cox ain't gonna let it) happen. You need to replace the DLink switch with a router, and the wireless router with a wireless switch. Know what I'd do? Take the DLinka nd the Netgear back, and get a DLink wireless router - all problems solved.

You will have to connect the server to the router, then do port forwarding (port 80, 8080, etc..) in order to run the webserver. I think that you router is also a firewall, check your manual. To learn more about routing go here..
