Re: escaping novell network and 21041 ethernet card

SIOCADDRT: Network is unreachable
with no other information.
I switched to the tulip driver as James Lewis suggested, and it loads
with no messages (de4x5 gave me messages about requiring irq11), and I
still get this message from the netwrok start.

not even the next machine.

I presume so. From this machine, the path is

I find the jump straight from the university gateway to my machine
odd, but there doesn't appear to be a router at 184.108.40.206 (it
answers pings, but ignores telnet connections. Besides, it seems
possible to reach my machine without going near it). I've listed the
.1.1 address as my router.0
>Do you need dhcp?
I've assumed not. I get the same IP address every time, so I presume
that they're static. I don't know what that means on a network the
tech support people (in explaining why I'd "waived" support by the sin
of installing linux) claim is pure novell (TCP/IP is actually disabled
on the network printers).
The IPX faq seems to cover printing & directories on novell well
enough for me to deal with, but first I need access to the world :(
