    no response to localhost ping


    I am trying to troubleshoot my samba configuration and the first test in the samba manual was to do a ping to 127.0.0.1 which I duly did.
    the response was nothing, NADA, nix. rien du tout.
    The cuusor dropped a line and just sat there, It is still just sitting there as I write this on the umpteenth attempt, after rebooting.
    Ohhold on.. after 3 mins it has come up with:
    PING 127.0.0.1 (127.0.0.1) 56(84) bytes of data.

    then the cursor has returned to the line beneath.
    Surely this should be a tad quicker than this? like it should only take fractions of a millisecond?
    What could be wrong?

    (Edit)
    I finally got bored waiting and killed the terminal, started a new one and did ifconfig:
    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:09:5B:07:2C:34

    This looks pretty normal to me?
    Any ideas? anyone?

    dilly

    i don't know ur distro yet.

    but see if u can get ur network configuration and make sure ur localhost addr (127.0.0.1) is in there and ur ipconf is intact then try starting the network service again.

    service network stop
    service network start

    after lets ping 127.0.0.1 and see if it works.

    urs in Linux
