    Hi,

    Could someone please recommend internet links that will give me guidance
    on the setup of a debian windoze network?

    I have a fully functional network with two PCs and crossover network
    cable using Debian.

    But I can't ping to or from when one is running windoze 98. I intend to
    use smb once I can connect the two.

    All suggestions gratefully received.

    Hi Tim,

    How are you assigning IP addresses? If you are doing it manually, make
    sure that you are giving the Win98 machine a valid IP on the same subnet
    as the Debian machine. If the Win98 machine is set to dhcp then unless
    the Debian machine is a dhcp server, the Win98 machine will set it's IP
    to something in the 169. range.

    Hope that helps.

    Attached /etc/network/interfaces.

    I've tried two scenarios on the W98 machine.

    1. The network address within adapter properties is 192.168.1.2, within
    TCP/IP properties I've set the IP address to (again) 192.168.1.2, subnet
    mask of 255.255.255.0. Gateway of 192.168.1.1. DNS hostname as sig,
    domain as WORKGROUP, WINS config set to search for 192.168.1.1 and DNS
    server to search for 192.168.1.1. Screenshot of winipcfg at

    http://members.lycos.co.uk/tsilatnem/winipcfg2.jpg

    2. No network address, IP address or subnet mask specified. Gateway of
    192.168.1.1. Screenshot of winipcfg at

    http://members.lycos.co.uk/tsilatnem/winipcfg.jpg

    Neither of these scenarios yields packet receipt on pinging.

    How would I tell if the W98 machine is set to dhcp? My understanding is
    that setting the network address prevents dhcp from being used.

    Don't you hate that OS for networking!

    Thanks aplenty.
