Start with the basics...
Can you ping localhost and then the host IP of your machine?
Is bastille-firewall thing running on the box? If yes, stop it and try
by the way, you are better off using the e100 module coz the eepro100 is
crap. load o' problems reported, check google.
I haven't woken up for step two yet :(
I've just installed RedHat7.1 and am attempting to hook up to the
local LAN. The box previously had Win2K and could talk to other
hosts. Before installing RedHat I tried installing Debian2.3 and
after being asked to enter network config details was
able to ping other hosts on VT2 (the Deb install later bombed). So I
assume my problems aren't hardware related.
Under RedHat I can't ping any other host. Here's a listing of the two
main sysconfig files:
# cat /etc/sysconfig/network
# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
This config yields:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:30:05:0F:A2:82
inet addr:22.214.171.124 Bcast:126.96.36.199 Mask:255.255.0.0

default 184.108.40.206 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0
The weird thing is that the other Linux box in the room returns the
exact same (apart from its IP address and RX packets=0) for the four
commands above BUT it CAN ping other hosts.
Does anyone have an idea as to where to look for problems? RedHat
originally used the e100 module for the NIC, but I changed this to the
eepro100 module as this was what worked in the Debian install.
I'm stumped, and reading the relevant sections of NAG and Net-Howto
didn't improve the situation.
