Power Network problem

I have 2 SUSE servers ( & both are similar and has the same gateway
I can connect to the second one from my PC just fine (
The problem is i couldn't connect to the first one using SSH even after i disabled the firewall. when i ran tracert on both from my PC, i saw that (see below).
From the output of the tracert I believe this is a gateway related. i checked every thing and i see the gateway defined the same on both servers.

C:\Documents and Settings\me>tracert -d

Tracing route to over a maximum of 30 hops

  1    <1 ms    <1 ms    <1 ms
  2    <1 ms    <1 ms    <1 ms
  3    <1 ms    <1 ms    <1 ms

Trace complete.

C:\Documents and Settings\me>tracert -d

Tracing route to over a maximum of 30 hops

  1    <1 ms    <1 ms    <1 ms
  2    <1 ms    <1 ms    <1 ms

  5     *        *        *     Request timed out.

Both your traceroute outputs don't list the gateway ( I'd be looking at routing table if I were you.

It's odd that you can get a response from wither server, do you have multiple IPs on the one router perhaps?

hmmm... are you sure your route is set right?

Smiling Dragon is correct on the point that you do not see your gateway in the traceroute, however since the servers are on the same subnet you might not. What you SHOULD see is that the first or second hop is the target.

issue the command "route" and take a look at the "default" line.

OK, two things here:
1. I'm not sure about the "hop the target" part. could you please explain a little more?

-The second thing is i had some doubts about my SSH package so i reinstalled it. After that i was able to ssh between both for a little while, then it went back to the same issue.

Now this is to me is very strange & i don't understand this behavior.
