Networking fails after kernel change
:? Hi, I am trying to get a small cluster running on some HP 4200 work stations. My version of the clustering software requires the 2.4.27 kernel. It requires that I use the vanilla kernel (ie the official from kernel.org). I downloaded the source for my kernel version and compiled it, ( as directed by the tldp.org how to ) with all network services enabled, and with support for my NIC built in. However I can not connect to any external device after the update.
Things I know
the NIC is configured with a static IP and it comes up just fine with the specified IP, gateway etc....
I can ping and ssh the loop back device successfully.
I cannot ping anything external to the machine - destination host unreachable
working machines on the same lan cannot ping its network card
RH9 ( starts as the 2.4.20-8 kernel )
Broadcom 57** NIC ( configured with either the tg3 driver or bcm5700.o )
the NIC seems to be working.
TIA for any help.
