Able to browse net but ping does not work in console
I recently installed Fedora 10 on VirtualBox (host OS is XP) for evaluation purpose and encounter connectivity issue.
In virtualized Fedora, eth0 is running on DHCP. I configure Firefox to use proxy (because I am in office), and it has no issue browsing.
But, in console (I use gnome-terminal), I am unable to ping google.com or yahoo.com.
Example, ping www.yahoo.com
And if we do a nslookup on www.google.com
In this config I manage to ping the proxy and it responses. So I presume the network config should be fine. I personally reckon the DNS setting is not properly set (limited understanding). Anyone please help?
Yeah the main issue seems to be that you have to configure your browser to get through to surf the web. This means that the proxy is not configured to work in transparent mode and direct connection to internet is protected and thats why most probably you are not able to ping.
