Re: Networking Help
First and formost you need to check whether the network card has been
properly installed on each computer in the network.
At bootup check for OK for the eth0 interface if you have just one network
card installed on you computers or likewise for the other network devices if
you have more than one network card on your computer.
Use the address range for private networks to assign an IP address to each
host on the network.
For example if a Class C private network is to be created assign 192.168.0.1
to the main machine(server) and then 192.168.0.2 and so on for the other
machines in the network.
After successful installation of the network card on each of the machine
connect them through a hub and try a ping to any other machine using that
machine's IP address. If the previous steps have been taken care of then the
network should be reachable and lo you network is up.
Get back in case of any clarification.

Please help on how to setup networking.
Well the problem is like this. I installed a server on a P-III which has a
RTL8139 network card with the IP address 100.100.100.100 It was able to
to itself successfully.
Now when I setup clients or KDE workstations, the setup din't ask me
anything about the server. Moreover I tried to config the netwrok first
netconfig it din't work..... said segmentation fault corer dumped. Finally
tried netconf and tried to put in a new IP address. Then finally tried to
ping to itself IT gave the error - Network unreachable. and thus cud not
ping to the server too. The workstations have a NE2000 compatible LAN card
as it shows in Windows.
Please help me setup a proper network (for text commands only also wud be
enough). Even dumb terminals wud do. Tell me the procedure if required
from start. And most of all shud be able to communicate thru each other.
Thanx in advance
