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!
