Re: problems with connection
are you really sure that you have a connection? Try the following using a
ping 126.96.36.199 (that is www.sun.com) does it work? Yes, okay your ppp
seems to work so far.....
after that try nslookup www.sun.com (giving you back the IP 188.8.131.52)
does it work? Yes, your DNS service is running properly...........
If these simple tests work, your connection is fine................
What else is installed, did you install a firewall maybe? Do you have to
open the ports 113, 80 etc. first, before you can use them? If the first two
tests work this means you definelty have a problem with your mail and
browser but not with your line........ if the two tests didn't work you'll
have to check your ppp settings again.
I bet that this is a name solving problem and your test fails at the
nslookup command! Let me know how it works out and make sure to use
