Can ping but cannot browse
I have a home network of 2 computers. PC1 has 2 NICs, runs Win 2000 and connects to the Internet via DSL using one of the NICs. PC2 has one NIC and is connected to PC1 via cross-over cable and is running Mandrake 9.
I want to be able to get to the Internet from PC2. I enabled ICS on the Windows box and the Linux box is set up for dhcp. Now I can ping both by IP and hostname to the external world from Mandrake; I can also telnet (both by IP and hostname) and FTP from the Linux box. But, I cannot browse the Web either via Mozilla or via Konqueror on the Linux box. When I try Yahoo or Google the browser just sits there and waits; there is no error message like host not found etc. I can browse fine from the Win box. I had a firewall on the Win box - ZoneAlarm - but I have turned it off for now.
I just cannot figure out why HTTP requests from the Linux box are not working. any suggestions?
