Suse 8.2 Networking Problem
I have setup Suse 8.2 on a seperate partition on my harddrive ....
We have a local network - with a internet connection via the network server - I checked the network card status and setup with ifconfig - And changed my IP address to 192.168.0.50 - Same as i user for windows - I then set subnet mask to 255.255.255.0 same as for my windows - I ping my own address which is 192.168.0.50 - NO PROBLEM but the moment i try and ping someone else on the network i get no reponse - ???
I am still new at linux but i think it might be the network services - Which do i need to activate for internet and intranet - I have also checked the routing table etc . But that is a non issue as i first just want to get a ping reply from the intranet......
Ps. My network card is a onboard rtl8139
(I have also tried another linux KNOPPIX which one boots from CD - That one detected all my setting by itself and was no problem i could access the web straight away...)
