I'm having an huge problem with my Mac, from months.

I have at home a linux server, a CuBox. It's running Archlinux, running fine. Everything works.

But the Mac can't ping the CuBox.

I will paste you a little log of what a ping gives.

Request timeout for icmp_seq 669
Request timeout for icmp_seq 670
Request timeout for icmp_seq 671
Request timeout for icmp_seq 672
Request timeout for icmp_seq 673
Request timeout for icmp_seq 674
ping: sendto: No route to host
Request timeout for icmp_seq 675
ping: sendto: Host is down
Request timeout for icmp_seq 676
ping: sendto: Host is down
Request timeout for icmp_seq 677
ping: sendto: Host is down
Request timeout for icmp_seq 678
ping: sendto: Host is down
Request timeout for icmp_seq 679
ping: sendto: Host is down
Request timeout for icmp_seq 680
ping: sendto: Host is down
Request timeout for icmp_seq 681
ping: sendto: Host is down
Request timeout for icmp_seq 682
ping: sendto: Host is down
Request timeout for icmp_seq 683
ping: sendto: Host is down
Request timeout for icmp_seq 684

And this cycling again and again. The issue is Mac software related, on Windows (Boot Camp) I can ping the CuBox.

With the help of reddit, http://www.reddit.com/r/applehelp/comments/19vbwf/mac_cant_ping_linux_server/ I made it working for 2h. The next day, (after making the computer sleep) the problem happened again.

For making things works 2h, I have played with sharing settings, disabling and enabling again. This trick is not working anymore now.

I really need to access to this CuBox. If anyone have a clue, please tell me what to test!

Thanks.

What does your routing tables says ? ( netstat -r ) –  Matthieu Riegler Mar 13 '13 at 13:54
    
What does your firewall say? –  Rob Mar 13 '13 at 13:55
    
What happens when you ping your router's IP address? What happens when you ping the IP of the Linux box instead of its host name? –  bispymusic Mar 13 '13 at 15:41
    
netstat -r -> paste.placeholder.fr/show/202 No firewall on both. I ping always ip. –  Cubox Mar 13 '13 at 19:59
