Error Unable to ping host

Hi, dear all, I am rather new to Unix and have this problem where I cant seem to ping from 1 host to another. The scenerio is as follows: -

1 QNX host->Eth->1 SCO host

the SCO host is configured with it's IP
the QNX host is configured with another IP
both in the same domain, ie, 172.20.3.XX
however both cant seem to ping each other at all

Hence I wonder if I had miss out any steps to get these 2 machines able to see each other.

Thank alot in advance!

you used the hostname or the ip address to ping?

try "netstat -rn"
do you set up default route for both of machines?
