    Ping from Windows to Damn Small Linux works, anything else doesn't

    I'm using Damn Small Linux, installed to the hard drive, and I have it up and running so that when it boots, the ethernet connection is activated, and the SSH and samba servers are running. When I ping from my windows machine, it works fine. When I try and use PuTTY to SSH, or access a samba folder, the connection instantly dies, however if I login on the DSL machine, restart the connection with ifup eth0, and logout, SSH and samba folders work fine. I assume there is some way of fixing it so I don't have to touch the DSL machine, and can just use SSH/samba. Thanks.

    Turns out that a ping does eventually die...don't know if that makes a difference.

    Same problem

    I had the same problem. It seemed my connection die when I try to login by ssh on another terminal.
    If you are under a DHCP server usualy try writing

    ifdown eth0
    ifup eth0

    in /opt/bootlocal

    and write in /etc/network/interface

    auto lo eth0
    iface lo inet loopback
    iface eth0 inet static

    Value may change for your network.
    For me it works under a DHCP server but I never tried without a DHCP server. Well i fugure the best way to know if it work is to try it.
