Hi Managers,

I asked:
I am tryin to setup a home network with Ultra10/Redhat8/Wn98se with a Linksys EZX5SSW 5 port switch. Switch is autosencing 10/100. After I have connected my Redhat8 and Ultra10 to the switch I try to ping from redhat to U10 or vice-versa and I get host unreachable. My Redhat eth0 is

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:50:BF:FF:C0:04
         inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
         RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
         TX packets:49 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
         collisions:0 txqueuelen:100
         RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:2058 (2.0 Kb)
         Interrupt:5 Base address:0x9000

My U10 hme0 is
hme0: flags=1000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 2
       inet netmask ffffff00 broadcast
       ether 8:0:20:9f:a:55
What I am doing wrong here?, Linksys manual says just to connect your systems to the switch. Please help me!!!!

As suggested by all of you my netmask on Linux was out and also I noticed my U10 was at the OK prompt (when I unplugged the serial cable it dropped to the ok prompt - now I have disabled it).

Thanks for the help
