This was meant to say "Yes, it can ping by IP."  I have no idea what
made me type this.

Late last year I had a similar problem and found an answer in the
archives suggesting checking the firewall settings.  Here's and excerpt:

"I found while looking at the Linux Firewall module in Webmin that only
lo was set to accept any traffic but that eth0 was not. I added a rule
to accept any traffic on eth0 and now my internal workstations get
through the firewall just fine."

Here's the link if you want to follow the whole thread:


It worked for me, YMMV.

My mileage did not, in fact, vary.  Thanks for the tip.  I installed
webmin, added a rule to accept all traffic on eth0, and presto-chango
it works.

Thanks for all the helpful responses.
