TCPIP and 2 interfaces under QNX 4

Post by Sheldon Parkes » Tue Jul 16, 2002 6:23 pm

I have 2 QNX 4 boxes set up each with 2 ethernet cards en1 and en2. The QNX
networking works perfectly and is using both interfaces as far as I can tell
from netinfo -l.

I installed TCPIP on both machines and they can ping themselves perfectly
but cannot ping each other. The setup is dead simple, no routing involved at
all, IP number range and subnet masks are the same, everything I can think
of is setup correctly.

Has anyone run across this before? I'm guessing it has something to do with
the dual ethernet interfaces but who knows...

Thanks

A follow up of things I tried to resolve why I can't ping between 2 nodes. I
ran netsniff on the node that is 192.168.4.236 and pinged it from
192.168.4.239 and saw that the packets were actually arriving. Now can
someone please interpret what this means exactly:

In my netmap file node 8 ( which is 192.168.4.239 ) has

8 1 000102edbd2c
8 2 000476348299

Node 9 ( which is 192.168.4.236 ) has

9 1 0004763400d3
9 2 00047634829e


Now the MAC address for the Src in the netsniff output is the correct one
for en2 as I would expect. What exactly is ARP request sender? ( it contains
the MAC address for en1 for some reason - which is likely my problem ).

I tried using arp -s to map the ip address to the correct MAC address on
both nodes but still can't ping. I seek the wisdom of the gurus out there...
