Hi,\n\n"Now you see it, now you don't". I have 2 PCs connected on a HUB.\nOne is a Windows box, the other one is a RH 9.1.\n\nThe Setup:\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\nPC1:\nRH9.1\neth0 (e100) 192.168.0.100, 255.255.255.0\neth1 (3c59x) 192.168.0.101, 255.255.255.0\n\nPC2:\nWindows, one NIC, 192.168.0.10, 255.255.255.0\n\nThe Test:\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\nI can ping any nic from any other nic. If I type "ifdown eth0",\nWindows can no longer ping eth0 but it can PING eth1 and eth1 can PING\nWindows. Same thing with "ifdown eth1". Life is good.\n\nThe Problem:\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\nIf I disconnect the eth1 network cable, I can't PING any NIC from\nanywhere. Strange, this should be the same result as "ifdown eth1"\nright? So I put back the eth1 network cable and I disconnect eth0.\nThis time I can PING any NIC from anywhere. Geeezzz\n\nQuestion: Why? Is this something about "routing tables"? Any help\nwill be appreciated.\n\nThanks.
