nic issues on dl385 g5

I have centos 5.3 i386 installed on my dl385 g5 server. everything seemed to install ok. did a manual install, did not use the hp smartstart cd. configured my interface.

on the back of the server i have nic's 1,2,3,4. The interfaces in the Centos OS is eth0, eth1, eth2, eth3.

i config'd eth0, plugged into nic1 onthe back of the server (since it does not start at 0). It syncs up good with the switch, network is good, however, i cannot connect to anything on the network. checked the subnet, g/w and cannot seem to find the problem.

any and all help is appreciated, i am a newbie and need some help from the people that make linux great.

Chances are that nic1 and eth0 don't match ...

You may want to try and use ethtool to identify who's who.

for i in {0..3}; do ethtool -p eth${i} 5;done
That will flash the lights on each NIC respectively for 5 seconds.

Another option is to check your iptables set-up.
