PPP dialup problem
This problem is driving me nuts. I have installed Debian 3.0. However, I cannot get the get a browser to use the ppp connection.
I have used kpp to configure and establish the connection (this works) however when I pull up a browser, it just sits there and doesnt pull any data from the web.
I am logged in as user, have put DNS numbers in the ISP configuration, I get same problem when using PON.
Did I inavertaltly create a firewall?
any help would be appreciated.
do you have an ip address ( ifconfig )
ppp0 Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
inet addr:184.108.40.206 P-t-P:220.127.116.11 Mask:255.255.255.255

can you reach the default gateway ( ping ipofdefaultgw )

Thanks for your info. I may try this, however I did some more reading and found that the default debian kernel is not configured for more that two serial ports. I need to compile a new kernel.
I will try that first. I do see options for that in Xconfig.
well you said it is connecting, I can't imagine what in the world not having two com ports has to do with the browser not opening a web page.
But maybe someone can use this later.
Just the basic requirements required to be able to use a connection.
I too am confused about this...
I can log in, and get a connection. But when I open up my browser, it just stands still, trying to decode the dns.
I have followed the instructions in the installation docs closely. Cannot work around this problem...
what is it looking like on the commands I posted above in post#2
I did not do that. I went to Best buy and bought a external modem... (took me two trips as the cable wasnt in the box).
But the situation with the internal was strange... I could dial, get a connection, etc. But my browser would hang on looking up the dns...
I may need your post#2 info, as I will be trying that modem when I put linux on an older box..
try these commands after the internet connection is establishes
route del default
route add default ppp0
and inform me about the results
Even if you buy a new modem you still need to do the commands above if it's not working so we can see the problem. You diid not need a modem if it was already connecting, just needed to run a few commands to see what we need to do.
