Dest Unreachable with PPP


I am having two different problems with my ppp conection.

First, when I connect to my isp, I can not reach anything.

pie:/home/cs# pon stowetel
pie:/home/cs# ifconfig
lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0

pie:/home/cs# ping google.com
PING google.com (216.239.57.99) 56(84) bytes of data.

From 192.9.202.253 icmp_seq=2 Dest Unreachable, Bad Code: 9
From 192.9.202.253 icmp_seq=3 Dest Unreachable, Bad Code: 9

--- google.com ping statistics ---
3 packets transmitted, 0 received, +3 errors, 100% packet loss, time 2001ms

How can I fix this, any ideas?

Also, when I have my eth0 connection up, DNS will not resolve. My guess is that the computer is trying to access the internet over eth0 but it only connects to a LAN.

Check your route table to see what your default gateway is set as...

route -n should do it... the -n indicates that is should return numeric output and not attempt to resolve the hostnames (optional).

Hope this helps...

lemme know...

So, I don't really know what I'm doing with route, but it would seem as if all my trafic is being sent through ppp0

Try running a traceroute to Google:

traceroute -n 216.239.39.99

If you can, copy and paste the results of that into here.
