some network questions
I have some network problems/questions. I have a rtl8139 card, the
pfinet server seems to be set correctly. (i can ping the ip address of
my card - 192.168.0.2)
1) if i do 'ping -c 2 -f 192.168.0.2', ping says: transmitted packages
4; reveived packages: 2; 50% packet loss. why does ping try to
transmit the double number of packets, which i've set with '-c'?
2) i've installed the telnetd - if i do 'telnet 192.168.0.2', it
connects to the telnetd (it gets logged), but nothing happens. the
line "Escape character is '^]'." appears and then the telnet process
hangs. -- BUT, if i type 'telnet 192.168.0.2 23' the issue appears and
i get a login prompt (but, the keyboard is quiet broken here)...
can somebody explain it to me?
