setting up proxy

hi, i'm new to linux.

Why can't my lunux machine ping my XP machine? their IPs are and respectively. subnet masks are they are on the same hub/switch

one more thing,

my windowXP machine running AnalogX as the proxy server. i am able to get Windows-based OSes to run as proxy clients, but I'm unable to do so with my linux system. how can i set up my Mandrake to be the proxy client? im using KDE gui.

My cable internet connection works fine if its connected directly to my LAN port. i just cant quite ping my XP machine, and vice versa

if any of you experts have the time, please help me out. thank you

well, if u can't ping your XP machine then u won't be able to use your proxy server, right?

fix your network problem first - check ur cables, check the LEDs in both ends (NIC and hub/switch). check your linux machine's logs for any error messages.
