Yes, sorry i'm confusing you all the time because I keep changing configurations and trying different kind of methods. This is what I'm planning to do:

I'm trying to use the eth0 to access the Internet and eth1 to connect with winXP. I just temporarily tried the eth0 to connect winXP to see if the problem was the eth1 card and that's why I tried ip 192.168.1.1 with it. It worked fine so I changed back to the earlier configuration, and that is eth0 to connect the Internet. Now I'm only trying to configure my eth1 card to connect winXP.

This is what I have now:

Linux
eth0: 195.148.188.41 -> Internet (Working)
eth1: 192.168.1.1 -> WinXP (Not Working)

WinXP
192.168.1.2 -> Linux eth1 (Not Working)

This is what I tried:

Linux
eth1: 195.148.188.41 -> Internet (Not Working)
eth0: 192.168.1.1 -> WinXP (Working)

WinXP
192.168.1.2 -> Linux eth0 (Working)

And thank you for helping me so much, it seems I not able to figure this out by myself

There can only be two answers the first one is that in both cases eth1 failed to work therefore u can presume that eth1 NIC is not working or like I said on the other posts make sure that the eth1 is up.

I assume that eth0 is network card going to your ISP to connect to the internet which has a seperate cable to do this. the other cable is to connect to the XP box (crossover cable).

When u ping eth1 does it come with a response? If the answer is yes then your NIC is OK Ping the NIC on the XP box if it replies then itīs also OK. In this case check your cable if you have tested your cable and sure that itīs working then disable FW on linux and XP


Good Luck

Is there a way to check if eth1 is up? I've run the cmd "ifconfig eth1 up", did I do it right?

Yes, that's right.

Yes, I ping eth1 and it responses, but when I try to ping the NIC on the XP it will not respond. Crossover cable is 100% OK because I've tested it before and it is brand new. Firewall is disabled on XP, there's no firewall on linux.

I red something about routing and ipchains, could there be something wrong with these?

I finally made it work!! The problem seemed to be my ISA slot or a wrong irq. I changed the NIC to a differend ISA slot and also changed the NICs irq to 3 and now everything works fine. Of course this would have been easier if I had known what kind of NIC I have and what irq it supports

The funny thing was that I thought my NIC was working fine because it responded to a ping command (locally) but I guess this doesn't mean a thing.

But anyway, thx for help ppl.
