http://forums.opensuse.org – I set up a PC with Opensuse 11.1 to display an html page on startup after login. I am useing KDE. The page is being "broadcast" from another device. Sort of like accessing the firmware for a router, ie: the device is not actually on the internet, it is local. The device has an address of If I plug the PC intot the internet I get the internet wich tells me the hardware works. But when I plug into this device and I attempt to ping the address I get "network is unreachable". I have set up a new connection in the network settings but it still doesn't seem to be connected to anything...? I am fairly new to linux so please go easy on me. Thanks. (Distributions)
