Hello,
    I have pc hostA with 192.168.1.100 connected to pc R1 with
eth0:10.1.1.1 and eth1:192.168.1.1 via crosscable when i ping from
hosta to R1 request packet goes to R1 but R1 generates packets with
srcip=0.0.0.0 and destination ip of R1's eth1=192.168.1.1 and hosta
unable to receive reply packet from R1. But if i ping from R1 to hosta
packet always goes to hosta and receives reply at R1. What can be the
reason is that arp cache problem or what else?
       When i send ping packet to R1 from hostA, the arp analysis on my
both Linux machines shows that when i did arp -a on hosta and found
output that
R1(192.168.1.1) at <incomplete> on eth0
and on R1 nothing is displayed.
        When i send ping packet to hostA from R1, the arp analysis on
my both Linux machines shows that when i did arp -a on R1 and found
output that

Address HWtype HWaddress Flags Mask
Iface
hosta ether 00:08:F1:43:62:91 C
eth1

and on hosta
Address HWtype HWaddress Flags Mask
Iface
R1 ether 00:08:F1:43:61:C1 C
eth0

whats wrong in hosta linux machine?
