    Host: request time out on 1 NIC .. success on other

    first posting .. forum won't allow me to post IPs so I can't post ifconfig info.

    RH 5.6
    why can my windows 7 PC ping my Linux server on the NIC 0 which has an IP set by DHCP

    but fail (timeout) on NIC 1 which has a fixed IP address?

    I try to post more info but the forum won't allow anything with numbers (until I've posted 15 times)

    I can ping from other windows and other linux boxes to fixed IP.. only on the Window 7 does it fail
