I can't connect to the internet. I don't know what to do. This used to work.

Specifics:
Redhat 9 on a laptop, runniing under Virtual PC. Hardcoded ipaddr 192.168.1.50, hostname billskics, fullname billskics.kidchez.com. DNS host ipaddrs were 205.152.132.235 and 205.152.144.235. with dns search path of mindspring.com, as supplied by redhat in the eth0 device config. Didn't work. I changed to more current 207.69.188.185 and 207.69.188.186 with no dns search path (earthlink didn't list one). Still didn't work.

I can see the windows machines on the lan, they can see me. We can ping back and forth by ipaddr all day long.

Samba sees the windows machines and can connect into them.

httpd Apache server up and running. Can get to home page via 'localhost', ipaddr given above, and billskics.

Internet is accessed through bellsouth dsl, with the linksys router handling logon processing for the connection. All of the windows machines can get to the internet fine.

Please help else I'll have to wipe the system and start over from nothing. Thanks. Bill NOyes

Hi,

what does the command

CODE
route
show?

it should point to your gateway computer.

to manualy change it

route del default gw [ip adress here, if there is one , but it's wrong]
route add default gw [ip adress here, the correct one]

Sincerely
Robert B

Ah, never mind. I added 192.168.1.2 and its working now laugh.gif Thanks! The redhat linux 9 so-called 'bible' didn't even have the route cmd in it. Thanks, mate! smile.gif Bn


It gives 3 specifications:
192.168.1.0, which pings to nowhere, on eth0
169.254.0.0, which pings to nowhere, on eth0
127.0.0.0, on lo

The router address is 192.168.1.2. Is that where it should be going? And what file holds the ip routing table?

Thx. Bn
