I'm going to throw this question out here but I want you to keep in mind i have not had much time to trouble shoot this my self yet
i did a freash install of fedora core 2 on my server
MSI k7d master L
Adaptec scsi controler
onboard intel lan deactivated
PCI intel gigabit card
install went great detected everything as it did in FC1
i usually use NTP so i set it to clock.redhat.com but it failed???
i moved on...
after a while I start configureing apache and and dhcp and so on when i realized i couldn't get to the internet
i statically assigned my ip address "192.168.1.55" if you care
since this pc was my dns and dhcp server for now my nameserevers are set to my isp
all the other pc's on the network are working fine if i statically assign the address but when i attempt to ping my server it times out
same thing happens when i attempt to ping my router from my server
so i went to "neat" network configuration and gigabit card was the only active one and yes the cable is plugged in
it was eth1 and the deactivated intel100 card is eth0
i'm aware of an issue with the redhat 7.x series where if you had 2 network cards that used the same driver or from the same manufacturer the system would sometime get mixed up when comunicating on the network
these are both intel cards but the driver is not the same
i do not have a cable plugged in to the intel100 card but it's not active so i'm wondering if i am have the same issue as 7.x series
i have not had a change to plug a network cable into the onboard card yet or disable the onboard card yet i will try that although i should not have to.
do you have any other sugestions?
