    IP address Red Hat Linux 9


    I'm new at Red Hat Linux 9.

    I installed Red Hat Linux 9, host is configured to obtain IP address dynamically.

    Linux host is connected in a Windows network, I installed and started linux FTP service to get access from win32 PC in network.

    I used a ping command to a win 32 pc, but source IP address doesn't appear. Also used ifconfig command and shows me a IP address, when I try to connect from win32 ftp client, an error occurs "Unknown host name".

    I made a test from linux host using same IP address and everything works fine, when I try to connect using a Red Hat Linux 8 host, connection fails.

    I checked ftp service, LAN connection, and are working fine.

    I don't know if I'm using wrong commands to detect IP address.

    I appreciate some help.

    Best Regards.

    Hi, and welcome to the forums.

    To try and help you out, can you post the output of running
    Code:
    /sbin/ifconfig
    from a terminal window?

    ifconfig output

    Code:
    Hi, this is the output I get from ifconfig tool.
    
    eth0      Li

    RX bytes:101793 (99.4 Kb) TX bytes:101793 (99.4 Kb)

    I assume that IP address is 192.85.40.220, when I try to connect to vsFTP using this address connection fails.

    Regards
