Re: Linux 7.3 Not able to connect

the other windows/sun nodes are on the same subnet? if no, the gateway is set correctly on the linux machines?

Re: Linux 7.3 Not able to connect

Hi Sunil,
first thing to check:

- ip configuration/gateway configuration
- firewall configuration
- on switch/router: vlan configuration

Re: Linux 7.3 Not able to connect

- could you please send us output of ifconfig?

Re: Linux 7.3 Not able to connect

Routing tables from all boxes, 'ifconfig -a' from linux and sun boxes, and an 'ipconfig' from the windows boxes so we can see what's going on.

I'd also like to see the output of these two commands on the linux boxen:

iptables -nvL
ipcahisn -nvL

Atleast one of these should fail with errors.

Are you sure it isn't affected by tcp wrappers, and thus require correct entries in the /etc/hosts.{allow,deny} files, so the contents of them as well if you could.

You've also verified that they are all on the same PHYISCAL segment of the network?

Now, what service are you trying to connect to? Are you sure this service is running on the linux boxes?
One long-haired git at your service...

Re: Linux 7.3 Not able to connect

You need a test

As root, both boxes

service iptables stop

Test connectivity.

If it suddenly comes on, you are in the right ballpark, if not move on to other causes.

Same goes if ipchains if you are using that firewall.
