Angry Networking issue


Hi
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

DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static
IPADDR=192.168.0.2
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=192.168.0.0
BROADCAST=192.168.0.255
ONBOOT=no
METRIC=10
MII_NOT_SUPPORTED=yes


thid ifcfg-lo

DEVICE=lo
IPADDR=127.0.0.1
NETMASK=255.0.0.0
NETWORK=127.0.0.0
# 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)
BROADCAST=127.255.255.255
ONBOOT=yes
NAME=loopback


I was able to tightvnc to XP from linux but still cannot ping from XP nor VNC

It sounds like you have a firewall running on the Linux machine. Try as root:

iptables -F

to stop the firewall and try testing from XP.

If that doesn't fix it, you may have some other firewall besides iptables running. I'm not familiar with Mandrake but there may be some kind of GUI security app from which you can control a firewall.
