    How can i connect to a class A network


    I'm a total novice as far as networking goes so this may be a stupid question.

    In the company where i work they have just installed some new machines in a class A network:

    10.1.10.x

    I am running debian with a static IP, this is my configuration in /etc/network/interfaces

    iface eth0 inet static
    address 193.106.32.232
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    network 193.106.32.0
    broadcast 193.106.32.255
    gateway 193.106.32.254
    dns-nameservers 213.139.0.51 213.139.0.52

    The people who i work with all run windows and did not have to make any changes to ping the new network.

    What do i have to change to be able to see the new network, connect via samba etc.

    All help gratefully appreciated.

    welcome to the forum

    assuming your "eth0" interface is up, try either

    "dhclient eth0"

    or maybe

    "pump"

    Thanks for your reply.

    It seems that the problem was not in my local configuration but in the gateway. The local administrators have changed the configuration of the gateway and i can now see the other network with no problems.
