    Routing Problem?

    Dear All,

    I've got a win machine participating into a subnet connected to a linux router with 2 NICs (eth1 - eth0 The linux box is connected with a linksys router on which gives access outside to the rest of the world. I can have internet access and ping all the machines to network from my win machine but not the other way round. Any suggestion will be much appreciated. (Firewall and forwarding rules to iptables are correct)

    It seems to me a firewall problem on your win machine (especially if you are using vista). Check if there's an in-built or a third-party firewall (such as McAfee) blocking the incoming icmp traffic.

    Thanx a lot for your reply. There is no firewall on the win machine all the traffic is filtered by the Linux router. There is no mistake in the iptables settings since I have extensively checked my rules.
