I am running Gentoo Linux on my laptop.
I have an SL-5500 sitting in the cradle.
I have usbnet working and I can ping from the SL-5500 to my laptop. I can also ping from my laptop to the SL-5500.
I am able to ssh from my laptop into the SL-5500.
Here is the network setup on my laptop as it relates to usb0:
My ifconfig line in /etc/conf.d/net looks like this: ifconfig_usb0=("192.168.129.1 broadcast 192.168.129.255 netmask 255.255.255.0 pointopoint 192.168.129.201")
FWIW, I have tried it both with and without the "pointopoint" directive and my results are the same.
Here is the network setup on the SL-5500:
- ip address: 192.168.129.201
- subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
- gateway: blank
- DNS (both blank)
From the Zaurus, I have no visibility of the internet. If I ssh into the Zaurus from my laptop and attempt a wget to my web site:
wget: www.boyken.org: Host name lookup failure
If I attempt the same thing via ip address, I get this:
Connecting to 126.96.36.199[188.8.131.52]:80
wget: Unable to connect to remote host (184.108.40.206): Network is unreachable
I feel like I am really, really close to getting this set up properly. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
