Ping


I have a small lan with 2 computers :

1. Windows XP
2. Linux Mandrake 9.2

I can use Putty from my Windows machine to communicate with my linux machine and my linux machine can ping my Windows machine but my windows machine can't ping the linux machine.

What does this mean ?

Most likely you have a firewall setup with your Mandrake machine that is denying ICMP requests, which is used by ping.

go to the linux box and type
echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/icmp_echo_ignore_all
and then see if you can ping it.
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/icmp_echo_ignore_all
will turn ping back off
