    Hi everyone,

    I've set up Linux systems before, but never as servers. Just setups that have a graphical interface.

    This is my first time to set up one and I used Ubuntu 5.10. I'm planning to set up a file server for our office and I'm a bit stuck with configuring my network card.

    I've set up the correct settings in my /etc/network/interfaces file with these values:

    IP Address: 192.168.2.241
    Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
    Network address: 192.168.2.0
    Broadcast: 192.168.2.255
    Gateway: 192.168.2.2
    DNS server: 192.168.2.2

    I get replies when I ping 127.0.0.1 and 192.168.2.241, but for other IP addresses in my network, it just returns:

    PING 192.168.2.XXX (192.168.2.XXX) 56(84) bytes of data.
    From 192.168.2.XXX icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable
    From 192.168.2.XXX icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable
    From 192.168.2.XXX icmp_seq=3 Destination Host Unreachable
    From 192.168.2.XXX icmp_seq=5 Destination Host Unreachable
    From 192.168.2.XXX icmp_seq=6 Destination Host Unreachable
    From 192.168.2.XXX icmp_seq=7 Destination Host Unreachable

    Oh one last thing. I don't know if this is relevant, but when I boot, there's an entry that says "Synchronizing clock to ntp.ubuntulinux.org" and then on the right side it says "[fail]".

    Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Does this other IP address exist in your network?
    What's in /etc/network/interfaces? What's the output of ifconfig? What's in /etc/resolv.conf?
