RE: Problem with Ping on Linux



Title: RE: Problem with Ping on Linux

well, from that output it looks like (if your broadcast is correct) that your netmask *should* be 255.255.255.0
Also, was there a 'lo' interface when you did your ifconfig?  If there was not, that could answer why you could not ping yourself...loopback pings take a different route then your normal eth device, it takes the 'lo' device.
