I have the following setup.
Computer 1: WinXP SP2, Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC.
Computer 2: Fedora Core 2, 3-Com built in GigaBit Ethernet card.

Computer 1 has, subnet mask
Computer 2 has, subnet mask

WinXP firewall is turned off for computer 1.
Unsure if any firewall (iptables) is turned on for computer 2 (how can I check).

I've had this setup working before and I thought I hadn't changed anything but apparently I have.

Ping does not work in either way. On winXp, the output is Request timed out. On fedora, the output is Destination host unreachable.

I have tried two different cables of which I am 100% sure one is a straight (non-twisted?), no result. I have tried other ip-numbers, to no effect.

Can someone give me a hint what to try?

Best Regards
