Using both web (lynx) and ftp (ftp) programs, I have
succeeded in accessing sites using numerical domain
(DNS) addresses, but not using addresses with words.
What's up? Do I use a different procedure to access
domains numerically than verbally? According to the
documentation for lynx, the format should be the same.
I am typing
as appropriate in ftp
lynx http://www.xxxxxx.com in lynx
I also tried referencing specific documents in lynx
(i.e. lynx http://www.xxxxxx.com/index.html but
evidentally the problem is in finding the server
using the ftp command open 126.96.36.199 to access
anonymous ftp, or using lynx 188.8.131.52, successfully
accessed the specified domain.
Whut's up here?
I have kernel 2.2.something.
