Network ... but no TCP/IP

Hello folks,

I am setting up eCS 1.2 on my Thinkpad. It's working fine, and 
networking kicked in when I found the right Broadcom drivers. However 
... I can't get TCP/IP to work. Nothing gets out, nothing comes in.

My setup.cmd is:

route -fh
arp -f
ifconfig lo 127.0.0.1
ifconfig lan0 198.162.42.98 netmask 255.255.0.0 metric 1 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig lan1 metric 1 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig lan2 metric 1 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig lan3 metric 1 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig lan4 metric 1 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig lan5 metric 1 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig lan6 metric 1 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig lan7 metric 1 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig sl0
route add default 198.162.42.1 -hopcount 1
ipgate off

which I hope is telling it to use 198.162.42.98 as its IP address and 
route all external traffic through 198.162.42.1, which is my router. 
By comparison my desktop machine sets up just fine with

route -fh
arp -f
ifconfig lo 127.0.0.1
ifconfig lan0 192.168.42.99 netmask 255.255.0.0
REM ifconfig lan1 metric 1 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig lan2 metric 1 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig lan3 metric 1 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig lan4 metric 1 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig lan5 metric 1 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig lan6 metric 1 mtu 1500
REM ifconfig lan7 metric 1 mtu 1500 
REM ifconfig sl0
route add default 192.168.42.1 -hopcount 1
rem dhcpstrt -i lan0
ipgate off

According to Adaptor and Protocol Configuration I have

Broadcom Ethernet...

1 - IBM OS/2 NETBIOS
0 - IBM OS/2 NETBIOS OVER TCP/IP
0 - IBM OS/2 TCP/IP

which is also identical (modulo adaptor name) to the desktop setup.

I must be missing something really obvious ... help!

Look in your LANTRANS.LOG to see if every thing is getting loaded 
without errors.

I see 198.162.x.x on one box and 192.168.x.x on the other box.

I suggest setting it to 192.168.x.x on all boxes. 198.162.x.x should not 
be used on a LAN, as it could exist on the Internet already.

Best regards,

~  What, exactly, have you done to test connectivity?
~  Can you ping localhost?
~  Can you ping 198.162.42.1?
~  Is there a number reversal and you meant 192.168.42.xxx?
~  What does "ifconfig lan0" display?

D'oh. How daft can I be. I checked that so many times ... I thought. 

Changed and sorted. Many thanks.
