Okay, this is for my RedHat 9 box, newly installed, with updated kernel and everything.. accessing the net via eth0 over a router.
Basically, my problem is the following : I want the box to respond to pings, accept port 80 connections and VNC connections and rlogin etc., and even though its "unchecked" in the fancy kde redhat type control panel it is still "refusing connctions" especially to itself!
Check to see if a firewall is running (iptables). If so turn it off and check to see if you can connect. Also check to see if VNC and rlogin services are started. If not start them. VNC and rlogin are unsecure apps, so be careful with them. You could forward X using ssh if you want to use a gui remotly.
I think that you can forward X to a windows machine if connecting to the Linux machine using putty.
Also I misunderstood, you need to set the router to foward all those requests to that machine. Also, install nmap and do a port scan on you machine and see if those apps are running. You can do this using nmap localhost command.
okay, so VNC seems to be running... but the HTTP server doesnt.
How can i get apache running? Scratch that, i figgered that out
Now i need to work out how to make it all available to remote hosts... its also not responding to pings from external sites, though pinging itself it works fine. I've matched the subnet with the rest of the network, and the default gateway, is all the same
Does it have anything to do with setting eth0 as a "trusted NIC"?
