cant ping my linux box


here is my problem

I have 2 network cards on my XP box, one goes to my dsl unit, the other goes to my other linux box using a cross over cable.

I cant seem to ping linux from Xp or XP to linux.

Is there some thing i should do to the XP box to allow traffic though the 2nd nick, so i can access the linux box ( Tinysofa ) using putty, FTP etc etc..

TT

check xp box if firewall allow connection on 2nd NIC. and also stop iptables service in linux box. check net cards if the link ligth up. and sure make sure that xp and linux box are in same network.

actually its not neccessary to turn firewall off in xp box to access linux box.

right?

linux and xp isnt in same network. change linux ip to 192.168.0.28
#/sbin/ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.28

and then try to ping xp.

I did what you said and it has chance to that IP
#/sbin/ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.28

I did a service network restart and it tells me ( Bringing up interface eth0: OK

Then on boot up i get this error
modprode: Note /etc/modules.conf is more recent than / lib/modules/2.4.26-5tsfirewall/modules.dwp

and then doing a ifconfig is has gone back to the old IP again

TT

hello
maxut is right , its look like Wrong IP configration problem

Machin A With 2 lan card Lan 1 IP connected with DSL -->192.168.1.10
Lan 2 IP connected with machin B->192.168.0.1

machine B with 1 lan Connected with machine A Lan 2 -->192.168.1.28

yes Change Machine B Lan 1 IP to 192.168.0.28
Or
can change machine A Lan 2 IP to 192.168.1.1

iP Address can be change with ifconfig command

Lets supse u chane machine 2 ip to 192.168.1.1 then do following test

then cehck with ifconfig that card is showing proper ip, then ping on Machine A to it own LAN card Ip's 192.168.1.10 and 192.168.1.1
same with machine B to ist own ip 192.168.1.28

Above test confirm that Lan card are working fine.
then ping from machine A to 192.168.1.28 and machine b to 192.168.1.1


IF still problem check croseover cable

Regards

ok here is what happend

I changed the ip on the tinysofa box to 192.168.0.28 using /sbin/ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.28

I cant ping from tinysofa to XP EG: ping 192.168.1.10
would that be because of the Firewall on Xp

How ever i can ping from tinysofa to 2nd nick on XP EG: ping 192.168.0.1

and i can ping the tinysofa from XP EG: ping 192.168.0.28

How do i save the IP for the tinysofa box

TT

P/s just to test it I started httpd by EG:service httpd start
and it came up ok, and i'm able to view it via XP browser.

but yet again how do i save it on boot up.???

use
#netconfig
command to configure your network. it will save your configuration.

will u enable ICS (internet connection sharing) on xp ? if u want to do, u may prefer automatic ip assing (DHCP) instead of static ip in linux box. if want to give static ip for linux, u must give gateway ip (192.168.0.1) and nameserver ip (192.168.0.1) too for linux box.

cool that worked

How ever i still get this error and i'm unsure what it means

on boot up i get this error
Bringing up interface eth0: modprode: Note /etc/modules.conf is more recent than / lib/modules/2.4.26-5tsfirewall/modules.dwp.

ping works both ends

and another thing i started sshd, but i cant log in via putty on my XP box, but if i use the tinysofa PC i can log in as root ok, whats the deal here ?

hello

regarding this issue
"I cant ping from tinysofa to XP EG: ping 192.168.1.10
would that be because of the Firewall on Xp"


yes it can becouse firewall on xp , if u did not intall any firewall the check xp default fire wall will be enable for that
-->open lan card properties-->Advance --> firts option will be Firewall if enable just remove check mark from option.--> apply--->OK

use ifconfig eth0 or eth1 192.168.0.28 may be i forget if could not work use ifconfig --help will show u proper way.

i think u have enabled firewall in linux box. so it refuses connections comes from xp box. as i understand u r in secure network. so stop it.

stop iptables (firewall).
#/etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables stop

it wont work every bootup
#chkconfig --level 35 iptables off
