Hi all ! :)
I'm trying to network 2 PCs :
one with redhat 9.0 - 192.168.0.1
the other with XP - 192.168.0.2
The netmask is for all 255.255.255.0

The linux'one is made to be a Internet provider for my network, but it doesn't work ! :?
I can not even ping from linux to xp. In fact, sometimes it works (when the server is on and the client is logging, but most of the time it is down (as soon as the xp client finish logging on his session)...
It works very well on the other way (Xp => linux)

Can someone give me some explanations, or things I can try to make it all work ? tanks ;) @++

note: I have disabled all firewalls (xp and linux's ones...)

Hey,

I don't know much about Linux, but I'm gonna guess anyway. What method does Linux use to format hard disks. Xp uses NTFS, does Linux use that method as well? if not, that could be a reason.

Thanks for your answer !
Since that, i've formatted my xp's hard disk and now that works perfectly. I couln't find any explanations about that...
Anyway, Linux uses Ext3 as a method to format disks, and that's not a problem for sharing an internet connection. We can even share files between each system and other tricks like that :).
Thanks anyway @++
