http://stackoverflow.com – I have a virtual network which is vmnet2 using the 10.0.2.0/24 network, I want my Linux server to be able to ping the default gateway. I have set the Linux eth1 values to be IPADDR="10.0.2.50" NETMASK="255.255.255.0" BOOTPROTO="none" ONBOOT="yes" In the etc/sysconfig/network GATEWAY="10.0.2.1" However, when I attempt to ping 10.0.2.1 the destination host is unreachable. I've restarted the network with service network restart but to no avail. Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface 10.0.2.0 255.255.255.0 U 1 0 0 eth1 default 10.0.2.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 (HowTos)
