Subject: Linux <-> WinXP connection problems
From: Marco <marco,AT,suse,DOT,it>

Versions:
cipe 1.5.2 (Linux)
cipe-Win32 2.0pre14

Net interfaces are up on both machines, but there is no way to let them
talk together. I'm just making some tests on a ethernet so the ip
addresses are:
Win IP:         192.168.2.2:7300
Linux IP:       192.168.2.254:7002
Win PtP:        192.168.150.2
Linux PtP:      192.168.150.254
The same settings work fine with a Linux<->Linux link, but if I use the
WinXP client I can't get anything working (even pings!!) on the cipe
channel.

The problem could be that WinXP doesn't let me set the netmask to
255.255.255.255 for the Win PtP address: it recognizes the address as a 
C-class and accepts only 255.255.255.0 -> therefore the WinXp routing 
table is as follows:

IP 
        MASK            GW              IFACE
192.168.150.0 
255.255.255.0 
192.168.150.1 
192.168.150.1
192.168.150.1 
255.255.255.255 
127.0.0.1 
127.0.0.1
192.168.150.255 
255.255.255.255 
192.168.150.1 
192.168.150.1

more entries are found in the table but they're not related to the
192.168.150.0/24 net. This doesn't seem to me like a point-to-point
link. Can this be the problem???

Thanks
Marco
