I have a fresh install of CentOS 4.8 running on an internal development server. I haven't done anything to it besides setting up sudoers and SSH. I can SSH into the server and from there resolve domains to IPs and ping internal servers, but for some reason I don't get any response from pinging external servers.
The software firewall is disabled, and the problem is present with both static and DHCP-assigned network configurations. The network domain controller is a Windows Server 2003 box.
$ nslookup google.com Server: 10.254.2.5 Address: 10.254.2.5#53 Non-authoritative answer: Name: google.com Address: 22.214.171.124 Name: google.com Address: 126.96.36.199 <etc...>
10.254.2.5 is the Win2K3 server.
$ ping google.com PING google.com (188.8.131.52) 56(84) bytes of data.
It just hangs here indefinitely.
$ cat /etc/resolv.conf ; generated by /sbin/dhclient-script search <...snip...>.local nameserver 10.254.2.5 nameserver 10.254.2.124
10.254.2.124 is the backup DC server, which is currently off and tombstoned by this point. The snipped section is our company name.

And, for good measure, a snapshot of the current ethernet config via the system-config-network GUI.
Edit: I don't yet have enough rep to post images, so here's a link. Sorry!
I'm pretty green when it comes to setting up *nix dev servers and network configuration in general, so please let me know if I've left out critical information, or posted information I shouldn't have posted.
