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.
