why can't I ping fedora 8 http before authentication?


I have a question about http server on fedora 8. I used to have fedora 6 and installed it as a server, and every time I turned it on, the moment the networking was loaded, I could ping that machine. On fedora 8, everything is set up separately, so I installed http and enabled networking, but now, when I turn the computer on, I cannot ping the machine before i authenticate the user. It works just fine once I log in, but I need it to work before I authenticate. I already had an incident, where there was a power outage here, so the machine restarted, but then, I was not able to do anything, because I couldn't even ping the machine. Thank you in advance for any ideas.

your nic is probably not starting up on start up...check that to see of that is working...when you are booting, see if the nic is starting up with all the other inits. you probably have to set it to start on boot in the network device configuration file

There were several adjustments I had to do, and I checked the nic. It works now. I do appreciate your help.

Thank you
