    Default More Info on 10.3.3 Ethernet Problem

    The network: 2 G4s, 1 PC (hardwired); 3 Macs via
    Airport (hardwired) connected to 8-Port Hub,
    sharing internet and files.

    Until 2 days after 10.3.3 update (from 10.3.2),
    no problems whatsoever.
    G4 No. 1 hosts webserver (WebStar) and is
    assigned a static IP by DSL Modem/Router/Bridge.

    The problem concerns the G4s:

    Both G4s see the internet without problem.
    Both G4s see all AT printers without problem.
    Both G4s see PC without problem.

    G4 No. 1 can see G4 No. 2 (through AFP)
    G4 No. 2 cannot see G4 No. 1 (through AFP)
    (It sees G4 No. 1 on the list, but attempting to
    connect results in timeout)
    G4 No. 2 cannot even see webserver hosted by G4
    No. 1 (locally).

    All other computers on network and Airport can
    see website. The only way G4 No. 2 can see
    website is by dialing out on modem and
    connecting from outside the network.

    So far, I've tried (or confirmed):

    Reinstalled from combo updater (G4 No. 2)
    DiskWarrior 3.0.1 on both G4s.
    Repaired permissions.
    Connected 2 G4s with direct cable.
    Booted G4 No. 2 in OS9.
    Appletalk is on.
    Appletalk is enabled in Directory Access
    Filesharing is on.
    Firewalls are off.

    G4 No. 2 to G4 No. 1 Ping Results:
    Ping has started ...
    PING 10.0.0.5 (10.0.0.5): 56 data bytes
    --- 10.0.0.5 ping statistics ---
    10 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100%
    packet loss

    ---

    I appreciate very much the suggestions I've
    received.

    Any further help would be GREATLY appreciated!

    TIA

    The only thing that I can think of is.

    1. The G4 with the webserver is configured to only accept connections
    from an external network, and not an intranet.

    2. The G4 with the webserver has a firewall turned on, I know that you
    said that they were off, but it sounds like something is on.

    3. The IP address you provided in the ping results does not look right
    to me for a static assigned IP address. I could be wrong here, but let
    someone correct me. Also do you have the static IP fully provisioned
    properly in network preferences with the DNS servers, and the like.

    Hope that this helps, or least gets you going down the right path...

    I would not mind seeing the results of a ifconfig from both machines just to
    see what everything is connected to router wise.

    Isn't there some logs keeping track of what's going on?

    You might get some insight from one of the following logs,

    /var/log/system.log
    /Library/Logs/DirectoryService/DirectoryService.server.log
    /Library/Logs/Console/<user>/console.log

    But weird networking stuff doesn't always show up in logs. I know that they
    donąt on Solaris and HP-UX machines. Unless something major happens.
