Please be specific! Provide more details about your plans will help others to help you. Reading your question please try Mandrake / Red Hat or any distro you have and then report specific problems you face, if any.

Assalam o Alaikum


One thing , There is this ip series which you are following.

If you are using redhat ,login as root and then type setup and press enter , goto network setting and punch in your ip address in there.

quit the setup application , restart the network by giving command

/etc/rc.d/init.d/./network restart

now , try pinging the other ip / windows 2003 / xp box .. it should ping , if you punched the correct ip in.


2nd is file sharing , goto /etc/smb , open smb.conf in your favourite editior and configure it, try reading SAMBA-HOWTO for it Please.

Thanks & Best Regards
