Ive recently set-up fedora core 6 and im currently attempting to get online with it.
It has picked up my network card and set that up for me, in the network configuration
i have input the pcs desired address, standard subnet mask and gateway address (address of my router)
Address: 192.168.0.11 <--this is what i wanted to set the linux machine as.
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway (router address): 192.168.0.1
Ive set this "service" to activate everytime the computer starts.
Now i can ping the linux machine from any pc in the house and i can ping the router and any other pc from the linux machine, but it just does not seem to want to connect.
I have tried the restarting the network service, deactivating and then activating the network settings in the network configuration gui but no joy.
I found with red hat, all i needed to do was run netconfig, give it an ip, subnetmask and gateway and it just worked. But i know im missing something now.
