Hi there folks,
This is my third time attempting to post this. There seems to be some
problems with online.ie this morning.
I've at last started to look at setting up a Linux network at home. I
managed to rebuild an old P90 with 24Mb RAM for the server role. It
won't be doing anything special so it dosen't need more RAM.
I went for a RH6.2 Server install on the machine and I also added DHPCD
and X and a couple of other utilities. DCHPD and DNS/named/bind (what
ever it's called) are setup and appear to be working correctly. I say
appear as I am having some problems with Linux clients and not Windows.
Both clients dual boot RH7.0 workstations/gnome install and Windows
2000. In Windows I can telnet to the server using hostname and ip
address. No problems. Ping responds immediately. Different story under
linux. Telnet server disconnects me. The message in /var/log/secure is
either that it can't verify the hostname as per /etc/hosts.allow or
just a plain denied to IP address entry. Ping also acts strange. It
dosen't respond for a second or two and then about 8 responses come at
once and then it continues as per normal. Also route takes a lifetime
to comeback with the detault route entry. But it responds instantly
with a route -n command.
I'm a little stumped as to where to look next. Any suggestions ???
