very strange network problem.


just think two system 10.255.240.230 and 10.255.240.102 are in network.
i can connect system 10.255.240.230 to system 10.255.240.102.
but i can not connect system B to system A but i can ping a system.


[root@localhost root]# ssh 10.255.240.230
ssh: connect to host 10.255.240.230 port 22: no route to host.
[root@localhost root]# ping 10.255.240.230
PING 10.255.240.230 (10.255.240.230) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 10.255.240.230: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.504 ms

64 bytes from 10.255.240.230: icmp_seq=5 ttl=64 time=0.498 ms

--- 10.255.240.230 ping statistics ---

rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.494/0.498/0.504/0.024 ms
[root@localhost root]#

but system 10.255.240.230 can ssh to 10.255.240.102.
and ftp telnet samba nothing is working other than the ping.

how to tackle this issue.?

have you checked that sshd is running on the computer you can't connect to?

see i can connect an other system too. so it means sshd running on both the machines.and this is not only the case. ftp telnet samba NFS are not working.
so obviously there is a problem in internaly.

now my question is how to handle this issue.?

Did you review the firewall configuration on both systems?

That netmask covers 10.255.240.0 - 10.255.255.255 - a large subnet but if you've configured ALL your equipment to use that netmask, it shouldn't be a problem.

What is the output of /sbin/route on machine 10.255.240.102? It is very strange that this machine can ping 10.255.240.230 but ssh reports no route to that host.

I think the second entry may be causing problems. Why is it there?
What is the output of /sbin/ifconfig eth0 on this machine?

Well, the interface uses netmask 255.0.0.0.

Try this and then check if ssh works:
route del -net 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 eth0
route del -net 10.255.240.0 netmask 255.255.240.0 eth0

If you have some reason for the 192.168.1.0 routing entry, you can probably put it back in (I *think* it won't cause problems) but the 10.255.240.0 entry is certainly redundant given your default route.
route add -net 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 eth0
