    Server linux install & access from desktop


    I have a HP DL380 G3 server.

    I have installed Red Hat Linux 5 on to this server.

    I have a KVM switch which i am using to share the keyboard, mouse and monitor.

    I have connected the ethernet cables from server to a netgear 5-port switch.

    I also have a HP pavilion desktop with Windows xp installed in it.

    I have connected the network cable from this desktop to the netgear switch.

    I have putty installed in my desktop and trying to access the server since they
    are in the same network.

    At the server, i started the network gui and set the eth0 and eth1 appropriate
    IP addresses. I have verified their existence in both /etc/hosts and by running the
    command ifconfig.

    From the desktop, when i ping the server broadcast IP address, i am able to ping it.

    I am not able to access the server IP address.

    For example, from the desktop,

    ping works fine.

    ping times out.

    What am i missing here?

    How can i troubleshoot this issue?

    Thanks much.

    So complicated question. There are much of possibilities that cause this problem such as firewall, cable connection issues ... I think you should narrow the problem,

    Cables are ok; he can ping it. Firewall is the issue. Be sure you allow remote login on the host machine.

    This might be too simple, but are eth0 and eth1 both activated?
