I have a wireless router (buffalo airstation) and several boxes connected to it by wire. I can ssh between them, e.g.:
box1$ ssh box2 box2$
box1 is connected wirelessly,
ssh box2 fails with
No route to host.
firefox &c to the internet work fine with both wireless and wired connections).
ping box2 fails with
Destination Host Unreachable. (name
box2 is resolved to the correct IP address by both
ssh, probably because they are specified in /etc/hosts).
box1 is connected by wire
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:90:f5:80:d8:dc inet addr:192.168.7.101 Bcast:192.168.7.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::290:f5ff:fe80:d8dc/64 Scope:Link
wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:21:5c:46:e6:a5 inet addr:192.168.7.103 Bcast:192.168.7.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::221:5cff:fe46:e6a5/64 Scope:Link
note that this is for the client
box1 which initiates the connection; the server
box2 which is
pinged is always wired:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:50:ba:c8:0d:c7 inet addr:192.168.7.100 Bcast:192.168.7.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::250:baff:fec8:dc7/64 Scope:Link
Again, note that both wired and wireless connections work perfectly when accessing the internet behind the the router.
So, how come I cannot connect to the wired
box2 from wireless box
