    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
    from a terminal window?

    ifconfig output

    Hi, this is the output I get from ifconfig tool.
    eth0      Li
    nk encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:C0:4F:97:8E:AE
    inet addr: Bcast: Mask:

    TX packets:217 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

    RX bytes:232564 (227.1 Kb) TX bytes:32265 (31.5 Kb)

    collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
    RX bytes:101793 (99.4 Kb) TX bytes:101793 (99.4 Kb)

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