I have RedHat 8.0 (kernel 2.4.18-19.8.0) installed and
tried to connect to the internet via ADSL SpeedTouch modem (provider BT -UK and we have a static IP address) http://www.speedtouchdsl.com/produsb.htm
drivers and instructions. During instalation everything went fine, i had no errors .
after running connection demon i tried
[root@server alex]# ifconfig ppp0
ppp0 Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
POINTOPOINT NOARP MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
but due to the luck of expirience with linux i can not understand why i can't browse or ping any sites outside despite of the fact that installation and hardware seems to be ok. Please help.
