Ubuntu to Fedora Networking Problem


Hi Everyone,

Trying one more time to network my home computers and have the following difficulty.

I have achieved networking capabilities with my WinXP laptop with no problem using Samba.
My problem is that I cannot seem to get my partner's Ubuntu box to play at all.
Configuration is this:

FC4 with NFS services enabled
Ubuntu networking enabled via DHCS

Wired router for both with gateway 192.168.2.1
FC4 - 198.168.2.3
Ubuntu - 192.168.2.4

I can ping from both machines fine, but neither machine recognizes the other on the network and will not communicate. The eth0 is a trusted device in FC4, firewall enabled.

Any attempt to results in "Connection refused" on both machines (telnet, talk, etc.)

The Ubuntu machine seems to have IPv6 in use, so I have enable support for it in FC4, but no dice, still no communication.

If I have left any needed config details out that may help diagnose, I apologize. Netstat on both machines seems normal.

Any help appreciated from anyone with any ideas.

Bob

my 1st step would be to disconnect the internet. then disble any/all firewalls and see if it works then. if it does then you've found your problem.

if not then you can start looking at why. inetd config. ssh daemon etc.
the fact that nothitng works points to firewall city.

Thank you for the reply. Thought of firewall already, diabled it, still no go. Ubuntu doesn't seem to have the same security level control that FC4 does, so no adjusting available there. SSH daemon is running. Would believe it was a hardware problem, but I can ping back and forth. Nothing else seems out of wack, all OK, and as I indicated, no problem communicating witht he WinXP laptop. But Ubuntu will not connect to that one either, so I know which box has the problem, just don't know what. Ubuntu is "too user friendly". Doesn't allow you to tweak like FC4 does. Oh, well, I'll keep trying, maybe read a little more on the Ubuntu forums.

What are the contents of your exports, hosts.allow, and hosts.deny files?
