in the /etc/init.d/network file is the following lines inserted?
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 up
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 host_name netmask 255.255.255.0
Add the kernel routing table
/sbin/route add -net 22.214.171.124 dev eth0
/sbin/route add -host host_name dev eth0
And finally I display the kernel's routing table
# display route table
I have found that by adding items to the display I have found the
cause of many hidden problems.
Have a good day :-)
