What I am trying to do is to connect two computers together through switch.
First computer is with Win8 OS.
Other is Ubuntu Server 12.04 OS (apache webserver).
I am connecting them with LAN cable through the Switch.
Scheme is as follows:
Win8 Machine <-> Switch <-> Ubuntu Server
What I would expect is that I would be able to open Ubuntu WebServer from my Win8 machine by entering IP address 192.168.1.5 in my browser, or access server with putty. But it doesn't work. The Win8 machine do not see the ubuntu server machine.
I have tried to set a static IP address for a webserver instead of DHCP but that doesn't change anything. What could be wrong here?
I am not very experienced user, so if someone have some ideas could you please describe the possible solution in a simple if possible step by step way. Thank you very much.
