View Full Version : can't ping a thing
2nd April 2004, 06:54 PM
just setup core 2 test 2 and I can't reach my network
I can ping 127.0.0.1
I can ping my own IP address
If I ping anything else I get "network unreachable"
ifconfig says things are ok, eth0 is active
fiddled with cables and such
tried to run traceroute to another machine
got "bind: Permision denied"
I installed everything
I notice at startup there are some messages about SELinux starting
I know about zero about SELinux, is it possible its got me so secure I can't talk to anybody??
I'm pretty sure the message when I run traceroute is telling me something I just don't know what

I wonder if the weird tcp thing from test 1 is still around. See this thread (http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=948)

nope, I had already stumbled on that and tried it
what exactly is bind? I know it has something with DNS. When I search for it on my machine I don't find a program by that name

Is this a home private network or ? - ICMP could be filtered at the gateway.

There is a bind DNS server. To check if it is installed run rpm -q bind in a terminal. (The program is refered to as named, much like the Apache webserver is httpd.)
However, there is some bash builtin called bind. Something to do with keymaps. No idea what it does. See if you can figure it out: man bind, scroll down to bind.
Let's try a different tool. Main Menu > System Settings > Network. See that it's activated and all that good stuff.
What network card do you have?

yea, it's a small home network
linksys firewall router
4 boxes some windows some linux some dual boot
everything else works fine
when I setup the machine in question I gave it static ip address
little GUI tools says it's there and active
If I change it to DHCP it fails to get an address (router is DHCP server)
when I try to ping it from another machine I see little light on back of NIC blink once per second, thats ping packets hitting it but it ignores them
I've also seen some problems while booting
occationally it hangs just after initializing SELinux
I'm trying a reinstall now
BTW, the machine is a dual proccessor box with 700 MHz PIII's overclocked to 933 MHz
this has never caused me problems before but if after reinstall I still have problems I will try dialing it back to 700 MHz
