    Connecting linux and windows


    Hi
    I have two machines

    M1 has XP SP1 installed and connected to the internet via sattelite.
    M2 has mandrake 10 installed.

    I have a network card in each machine.
    They are connected using a small switch.

    I gave each machine a static IP and made the ip of M1 the default gateway in M2.

    I could not get the network up.
    When I ping M2 from the M1 I get a time out response.
    The same when I ping M1 from M2 I get this:
    Destination Host Unreachable

    Let me describe what I did exactly.
    1- I went to hardDrake
    2- I clicked on the network card then on run config tool
    3- CHose lan network
    4- I did not choose the manual choice
    5- manual configuration
    6- in the Ip address I entered 192.168.0.2
    the netmask was 255.255.255.0
    network hotplugging and start at boot are checked
    7- Host name empty
    DNS server 1 is automatically filled with 192.168.0.2
    DNS server 2 empty
    DNS server 3 empty
    serach domain also empty
    Gateway 192.168.0.1 which is the IP of the windows XP machine
    zeroconf host name is also empty "I don't know what the hell it means"
    Thats exactly what I did.

    have you got a firewall on the XP machine turned on?
    This would include the inbuilt XP firewall, and any external products like Norton "Internet Security" (ha!), etc

    Have you turned on Internet Connection Sharing on XP?

    Have you turned on Internet Connection Sharing on XP? Do you want to use XP as the gateway because the satellite receiver only works with Windows?

    Turn on XP Internet Connection Sharing

    You have to turn on Internet connection sharing. I have not used it, so I cannot add much at this point. My guess is that it is not friendly to linux.

    pinging

    check the firewall settings on the linux box.

    then disconnect the windows machine from the internet and try pinging the linux box.
    you should be able to ping between these two machines. without the gateway settings.
