Computer A IN WINDOWS: 192.168.0.1 - netmask 255.255.255.0. Thats all.
Computer B only-windows: 192.168.0.2 - netmask 255.255.255.0. Thats all.
Okay, good. I will assume that you have configured your computer-A with the same IP addy and netmask in Linux.
Kylix seems good. I've seen the demo and have installed it (but since I don't code, I'm not sure how good it's as a programmer).
In the future i plan to use the Kylix language.
Okay, this is a good sign.
It has the eth0 well configured.
i ping the card fine. ping localhost...shows what i expect.
Okay, mine says;
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
192.168.0.1 servidor.linux servidor
The above entry will make your Linux box see your windows box when you do "ping windows" without entering IP addresses.
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain
192.168.0.1 debgateway debgateway.compunutsnet
192.168.0.2 windows windows.compunutsnet
192.168.0.3 rh73box rh73box.compunutsnet
Also put the same info in your hosts file in windows box. The format is the same.
Hostname says "servidor".
We will not worry about Firewall for now. If needed be, we will disable it.
IPTABLES shows nothing. it says ACCEPT in every line.
ROUTE shows both things.
Let's leave this one also.
NFS is mounted, IPTABLES is mounted
( testing all this i stopped and started the service without success)
That shouldn't be if you have DNS look up. Your nameserver IP should go here. But since we are not going to be messing with DNS stuff, I think you are okay.
/etc/resolv.conf says nothing. is empty.
After making changes, did you save it? In Vi ( or Vim ), you hit "Esc wq" to write and quit.
under /etc/sysconfig/network says "hostname=servidor.linux"...i put another things in it, but always RH8 leaves the file like that.
What other things? NETWORKING='yes"...but always i back to see the file and i see the hostname word only...
The other files network related shows the same things. There are nothing else.
Also, you need "GATEWAY" info in there. Here is mine.
Also, this is my /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file contents.
Check and verify you have similar settings.
Errors are not specific to specific users.
I Boot the computer A. login as "root". NO ERRORS on any services.
If you want to know what errors when you boot, type "dmesg".
Well, you will also need to set up Windows box to see Linux also to make sure that you are in the same network and workgroup. Outside of workgroup, you can't see it.
I boot the COMPUTER B. i go the DOS prompt
I haven't used in Win98Se for so long that I don't remember where you need to set it up but I figure it's in Network area of Control Panel.
This sounded like you need GATEWAY set up in Linux (although it's not definitive).
I ping FROM LINUX (A) TO WINDOWS (B)....DESTINATION HOST UNREACHABLE.
Linux would be the same class as WinNT since it's more like client-server arch than windows 9X family which is essentially peer-to-peer.
Yours is more specific to setting up Network than hardware. So don't blame hardware for it.
Remember WINDOWS NT and its horrible "hardware list compatible" book?
Does LINUX have another? LINUX is more of the same thing?
It's because it's peer to peer. Have you tried with WinNT and Win2K? Without knowing where to look, you are gonna spend more than two weeks. Remember, you knew Windows but not Linux. If I have to setup OSX network, I would be in your shoes as well.
Time I did the tiny LAN with Windows98SE: 10 minutes.
I dont' know where you are looking with your problem but if you tried google.com, you can find plenty of help around.
From two weeks ago I face with this problem. Nobody on the net says ANYTHING about this "LAN HOME NETWORKING with two stupid machines with Linux and Windows"
This one is for Red Hat 6.2 but a few minor changes, it can be applied to RH 8.0 a well.
Most likely not.
Im the only person on this world with this problem?
May be you should have made it clear that your network is isolated. Also, dont' get furstrated too fast. Remember, NOT all persons on the NET is Linux gurus (I'm not one for sure)
All people says me: "On internet you...", "The DNS..", my anger grows...I dont have internet connection here, i dont have DNS,
Try above and see what happens.
I-just-want-a-simple-ping-between LINUX AND WINDOWS.
In order to share files, you need SAMBA. Windows 98SE natively use SMB protocol. SAMBA is Linux's implementatin of that protocol.
ALL SAMBA STUFF will come later when I-CAN-PING-MY-F***ING-MACHINES and I can share files.
Sorry to break your party but the problem wasn't Linux's either. YOU need to set it up. Even in Windows, you can't just install and share files. YOU need to configrue it in order to use it. When you configure, you need to follow steps and procedures. Same applies for Linux.
Can you imaging how I feel with I hear "LINUX will be THE ORGASM...its the future...its the best" and i-can-not-get-any-answer-from-my-machines-when-i-ping-each-other"
Coaxial can be used to run TCP/IP network so you should have no problem. It's the 70s topology but it works (sort of). I know there are places coaxial makes sense ( my homenetwork started out with coaxial cable. If you need some cables, let me know. I have a few un-used cables, repeaters and terminators laying around.
Detail: My Home LAN is a coaxial cable with two NIC cards 3Com model '97. I insist: on Windows , they work fine.
