opensuse 11.1, Dyn ip works, Static does not
I recently changed my network from one IP address to another. I changed all my computers and file/rsync server to the new address.
All my other computers work be it windows/mac some static some dynamic but for the life of me I don't understand why my Linux desktop does not.
When I use DHCP (dynamic address) everything works, but when I use a static address it does not.
My mac and windows boxes have no trouble connecting using a static IP.
This linux box worked fine until I made this change. I know I screwed up something, but for the life of me I don't know what.
I used Yast to change the interface, I turned off the firewall on the linux desktop, but that does not seem to be it.
The hosts file is fine since I can SSH to my server via the server name. But here it is in any case.
# special IPv6 addresses
::1 localhost ipv6-localhost ipv6-loopback
127.0.0.2 tot100.tot.com tot100
192.168.XXX.5 tot900 tot900
192.169.XXX.75 tot700 tot700
By the way I replaced XXX for the real number.
Any hints on what could be the issue. I ran into a wall.
