Have you set up your kernel's routing tables? You can
check the current configuration with "netstat -r". You'll probably have to
execute a couple of command to tell the kernel where to send network
traffic, eg. something like this:
#$> route add -net X.X.X.0 netmask 255.255.255.0
#$> route add default gw X.X.X.1
... and a similar thing for the eth1
Perhaps if you could post the results of a "netstat -r"
command and a "netstat -a" command.

"The lottery: a tax on people who are bad
This is my first time writing to this list so
forgive me if I do anything wrong.
I have a problem with trying to get a server
which is meant to be a proxy server up.
Everything works fine. The computer is able to
detect the 2 3Com ISA Etherlink III cards inside and I am able to configure
The reason why there are two network cards is so
that one network card would connect to the LAN and the other would connect to
an ISP on another floor who has provided a static IP and a gateway IP
Problems/Questions are as below:
(01) An error message keeps coming up saying
eth0:transmit timed out Tx_status 00 status 2003 FIFO room 976. Can anyone
help by telling me what this means?
(02) I have set up the etc/init.d/network file to
see both cards and yet I can't ping out. It can ping the 'lo' section and all
the range of addresses. I intend to use eth0 for connection to the ISP and
eth1 for connection to the LAN. Could someone please advise on what needs to
be done. I have never used it and have only just taken a short crash course
from this book I bought.
(03) Can someone also tell em how to find out if
TCP/IP is loaded. I know this may sound stupid but I can't tell.
(04) How do I re-configure Linux so that should I
change hardware, it will be able to see it? The last time I was desperate and
decided to just re-install Debian from the CD which came with the book. I
changed the NICs.
(05) Is there anyone out there who is willing to
be a mentor to me.
Thanks in advance.
