Hi all,

I can't seem to get USB networking going, when I try in ping my C760 I get the following errors:

# ping -I192.168.129.1 192.168.129.201
PING 192.168.129.201 (192.168.129.201) from 192.168.129.1 : 56(84) bytes of data.
ping: sendmsg: Operation not permitted
ping: sendmsg: Operation not permitted

Wireless networking works fine though.

I have usbcore, ohci_hcd, ehci_hcd, usbnet, uhci_hcd modules loaded.

Interfaces:
iface usb0 inet static
address 192.168.129.1
pointopoint 192.168.129.201
netmask 255.255.255.0

I've been stuck on this for days so thanks for any suggestions you may have,
Patrick.

Are you running a firewall? Type iptables -L and see if you are locked down on that interface. You can also type iptables -A INPUT -i usb0 -j ACCEPT to insure the firewall isn't blocking the return of the icmp probe.
