    Static IP just wont connect....

    have a T1 with a block of 13 usable static IP's, xxx.145.0.2 - xxx.145.0.14, my gateway is xxx.145.0.1 and my subnet mask is and they gave me some DNS server addresses... On Gentoo I used the net-setup script, plugged in the said values and I was flying.... set it up statically on my Mac OS X server and it flies too... on a RH9 server I plugged in the data in the same manner as I did on the FC2 box in question and it also flew....

    So on FC2 it has a typical way to set up networking info, I plugged in all my info into the 'Network' utility and it sadly doesn't fly, ifconfig shows eth0 as set up with the correct values but when I try to ping anything, including the router, it comes back as unreachable, my NIC is a normal realtek 8139, it gets found easily manually with 'modprobe 8139too' and is added just fine.

    I don't really know alot about iptables and I think the problem may be there, I also saw in a previous thread about how IPV6 may be messing it up.... anybody know anything about that?

    Do you think the NIC might actually be the issue, as in it is up and able to be 'seen' but it is just somehow malfunctioning?

    Any suggestions? ANYTHING is appreciated!!!!!!!
    Many thanks!!!!

    static IP problem on FC2

    I have the similar problem...
    my host OS is Win2K and have FC2 on the vmware workstation.

    I have assigned a static IP to the virtual FC2.....along with all the settings for Gateway, netmask, DNS...

    but am unable to ping the gateway, not able to access the internet.

    I can ping my FC2 IP from my win2k....that works fine.

    The ifconfig displays all the correct settings..

    Any suggestion, advice is welcome.

    Thanks alot.
