Slackware network connectivity issues?
Hey all I got kind of a weird question. I am setting up a linux image that contains the bare minimum stuff to run rdesktop. These boxes are going to be used at the private school I work at, to connect to a Win 2k3 TS server. I have a slim version of slack 12 installed, but for some reason neither this slack 12 box, or my slack 11 laptop can not talk to the outside world.
Both properly acquire a DHCP address which is supplied by another windows 2k3 box, and both have correct routes the gateway (cisco 1720), and valid DNS (also win 2k3). Setting a static IP also does not help. Here is why its weird, I can ping all internal IP address just fine, and I can try to ping google.com. Doing so results in "From 192.168.50.1 icmp_seq=1 Destination Net Unreachable" but it IS able to resolve google.com to its IP. I tried this with my personal server outside of the network and the same thing.
Anyone have a clue what might be going on here? My router is a Cisco 1720, it is controlled by the school district. However if I ask they might let me poke around inside of it.
