I've been trying to fix this since late last week. I finally give up and decided to post in the hopes that one of you can see something I'm overlooking
Basically I'm setting up a small server at work, and it won't get any internet/network connectivity now. I should first explain my overall network topology to help clarify the problem. Please forgive the very lame picture.
Now when I built/tested the slackware server box I placed it under the 24-port switch and just had it configure the network with DHCP. Everything worked fine so I know the NIC is ok. Moving the server to its new location (so as not to get traffic blocked by the firewall) and statically configuring the network I get nothing. However if I literraly unplug the cable from the slackware box and plug in a Windows machine and statically configure it with the same values it works fine.
I configured the network via netconfig. It is unable to ping the following with a host unreachable: google.com, google by ip, local ips.
Here is my /etc/rc.d/inet1.conf
And my /etc/resolv.conf
And here I believe is the problem
# route -n
Destination || Gateway || Mask | Flags| Metric | Ref | Use | Iface
22.214.171.124 || 0.0.0.0 || 255.255.255.240 | U | 0 | 0 | 0 | eth0
127.0.0.0 || 0.0.0.0 || 255.0.0.0 | U | 0 | 0 | 0 | lo
Why is the gateway showing as 0.0.0.0 when it specifically says in inet1.conf GATEWAY="126.96.36.199"? And why is it 188.8.131.52 when I set the ip to 184.108.40.206?
This is the only information I put into windows for it work, as provided by SBC:
Any help would be much appreciated, this has been frustrating me to no end for almost a week.
