Question Nobody else can find my computer

I just set up RedHat 8.0. Everything works fine with the network connection (I'm using the box to make this post right now), unless you're trying to access it remotely.

I can't telnet, ftp, or even ping the box from another machine using the hostname. If I look up the IP address in the router (it has built in DHCP) it doesn't have a hostname listed for the address, the field is just empty.

I can ping the IP address and get a response, so things aren't totally hosed. I've never this problem before. I always just set the hostname and all the other machines could see it. What'd I screw up?

my /etc/sysconfig/network:

My ifcfg-eth0:

It sounds like a firewall issue.

Are you using a hardware router? If so I think you need a line in network GATEWAY= where this is the address of your router.

Did you change the disable=yes to disable=yes in the telnet/ftp files in /etc/xinetd.d /
