    Started webmin bandwidth monitoring and now cant see linux on network


    Hi there,

    I was in a playful mood this morning and now regretting it..

    I'm running Mandriva 2007 and i opened webmin to look at my VPN server and noticed Bandwidth Monitoring and thought i would click it then click on setup on eth0 and then it said page timed out and everything else timed out that i was connected to on the linux server.

    If i ping 192.168.1.4 (Linux machine) from windows i get Request Timed out, yet if i ping 192.168.1.3 (Windows) from the linux machine then i get a reply.

    So in my logic that say's that this is a firewall issue, i stopped shorewall from running and left plain linux firewall to do the job but still have the same issue.

    here is my ifconfig


    Code:
