Re: Networking Help

Hi There,
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 to the main machine(server) and then 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.

Dear Friends,

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 It was able to ping
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 thru
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 right
from start. And most of all shud be  able to communicate thru each other.

Thanx in advance

Goldwyn :o)
