works on windows but not linux


I had a windows server running at my Central Office from a connection my provider gave me...everything worked fine, so I wanted to switch it over to linux but for some reason I can't get it to work.

my provider gave me an IP, subnet, gateway, DNS, and wins server info that I used on my windows 2000 server and it works.

when I enter that info into linux via netconfig the only option that isnt listed is the wins server info so I set that in the samba conf file under wins server = IP, then started samba but I can't ping it. I tried disabling IPChains.

what am I missing? its a RedHat based distro.

Not sure what you're missing but WINS is for netbios name resolution only and would not affect your ability to ping the box. Whatever your network connectivity problem is it has nothing to do with Samba.

OK thanks for the samba thing so here is what I found.

an example:

IP= 65.30.4.145
subnet=255.255.255.224
gateway=65.30.4.159
dns=65.30.4.130

now I can ping other ip's in my network like 65.30.4.146 and 147 but not outside it like google's 216.239.41.104.

Did you add the nameserver info to the /etc/resolv.conf file.

Yes and it is in there properly.

when I ping that IP "216.239.41.104" I get Network is unreachable, but like I said I can ping other ip's in my network.


I seem to be having a problem close to this one: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Netw..._21004305.html


when I do a route it says:


65.30.4.128 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.224 U 0 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo

I take it you have tried:
route add default gw 65.30.4.159

Look at the output of dmesg. Do you see any errors with the network card?

your default route is missing.

edit /etc/sysconfig/network and add

GATEWAY=65.30.4.159

Save the file and run the command

#service network restart

Well I looked at the file "network" as ppuru suggested and GATEWAY is not listed in there so I added and will try it when I get the server back to my CO.

its possible your gateway is incorrect if you can ping inside the network but not outside

If it was incorrect why would it work just fine on windows?

When you restarted the network does the output of route show the gateway information?
If not what happens when you try to add it manually.
route add default gw 65.30.4.159

#netstat -nr

And

#/sbin/ifconfig -a
