When going to KPPP I get a box that pops up and says that /etc/resolv.conf is missing and I need to create it, any ides.
Joey
The first thing that comes to mind is that your /etc/resolv.conf file is missing and that you should create it.

joey: The file is there but evidently cannot be read. I did ls -l and it showed up but Ido not know what type of permissions it needs to have set or really how to set them as I am completly new to linux. When I look it seems to have only permissions for root. Also when I view the file it has no little pen on it and is blank when I open it.
Joey
The permissions should be as follows:


-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 90 Jul 21 16:28 /etc/resolv.conf


which is chmod 644 /etc/resolv.conf

In this file you should have your ISP's name server information.

the file should look like:



domain yourisp.com
nameserver 212.123.123.123
nameserver 212.123.123.124

Thanks Joey. Edited the file with pico and added my parameters. Also changed permissions. Now the little box is gone.
