Full Version: Help! Cannot Connect To Network

Please help. I have a server running SUSE Linux ver 9.0 and I cannot get it to connect to the ISP (cable).
I have a static IP, all IP info is configured and it did work up until the ISP tried to reassign the Static address last week. The ISP claims that everything is fine on their end. The firewall is not running, port 80 is fine and have added the routes. I am a newbie to linux and I would appreciate any advice smile.gif

I'm not sure what routes you need to add ... unless you have another device between the cable modem and the server.

If your server plugs in directly to the cable modem all you need to do is input the required information ... if you have other components, please tell us what they are so we can help.

The ISP should have provided you an IP address, a subnet mask, a default gateway address and a DNS server IP address to use for lookups ... do you have all that information?

I know SuSE has a comprehensive setup tool for everything. Use that to set up your network. Then try:

su
route
ping -c 3 www.yahoo.com

Paste route info here.
