Cant ping linux laptop from windows
I've been trying to setup samba between my mandrake 9.1 laptop and my windows 98 box without success. I've started trouble shooting and the first thing i have to do is be able to ping between the two thru my linksys wireless router. i can ping the windows machine thru the router from the linux laptop no problem. my problem is i cant ping the linux laptop from windows. i can ping the router no problem from the windows box. I thought maybe shorewall was the culprit because i havent adjusted any rules for pinging. But even shutting down the shorewall service hasnt helped. I would appreciate any suggestions to get my two machines talking. I assume because i can ping one way that i dont have a hardware issue but something to do with a setting or setting up linux box to reply to icmp requests.
