I put in a 2nd NIC card in the machine. I did this as I wanted to use the ADSL modem as well as be connected to the LAN.
The card connected to the Modem is eth0
. The one connected to the LAN is eth1
. I have set the IP address of eth0 to 192.168.0.6 and of eth1 to 192.168.0.1.
The windows machine is 192.168.0.2 .
been able to see the machine a few times as well as browse through the directories. I have been able to Ping this machine as well , erratically.
it is just impossible to even ping
the machine. There were a number of things I did to be able see the windows machine under Network
in Nautilus the file browser . I have no record of these . I have variously tweaked the Samba users settings , Network settings , as well as used Webmin .
I am sure I have disturbed one or more setting . Any help will be VERY welcome.
When I ping using Nettools
I get no response . When I ping through the terminal I get
From 192.168.0.6icmp_seq1 Destination host unreachable.
Would interchanging the connections cure this .
I have no problem when both are running Windows.
I am using a hub as there is another computer also connected
