Re: [vox-tech] eth0 troubles



Hmmm.  Two things come to mind.  Try this:

   tcpdump -i eth0

to see if you can listen in on any LAN traffic.

Next, try to do a proof of concept.  Pick some IP address that's likely
to be unused.  Say, for example, 192.168.0.5.  Then do:

   ifconfig eth0 down
   ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.5 up

If you don't get an error message, try:

   ping 192.168.0.5

If you still don't get an error message, try pinging another machine on
your LAN like your gateway.
