I have a DSL connection at home through a linksys hub
Hub/router (192.168.1.1) connected to an XP machine connecting wireless usb
(192.168.1.102 gateway 192.168.1.1)
I have a mandrake 10.1 linux machine (192.168.0.2 gateway 192.168.0.1)
which i connected to the XP machine through a network card (on the XP 192.168.0.1 gateway blank because i have internet connection sharing on 192.168.1.102 with crossover cable).
I am ABLE to surf the web on the linux machine and ping the XP machine
however I cannot ping the linux machine from XP. All firewalls are down on the XP side and XP cannot see the linux box,
What am i doing wrong ? what should i do to network XP and linux (the 192.168.0.x...). I want to VNC from the XP box to the linux box
here is the config files.
This igcfg-eth0 file
# If you're having problems with gated making 127.0.0.0/8 a martian,
# you can change this to something else (255.255.255.255, for example)
I was able to tightvnc to XP from linux but still cannot ping from XP nor VNC
