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.
Our MS boxes all work just fine. I will add that randomly my laptop internet started working but then died a short while later. Also we don't have any firewalling onside, just the Cisco 1720 and a few switches and hubs. All the firewalling is done at the school districts place.
If I had to guess its something weird within our 1720. I can't say I really know much about IOS though
But I guess its not a huge deal as these boxes are going to be only contacting internal IP's to use Terminal Services. But it would be nice to have basic browsing support if for some reason the TS server went down.
