Hey guys

My problem is now solved. I spoke to my ISP. They told me that the subnet mask that I was using was wrong. I am still surprised, because my windows connects to the internet using the previous mask itself.

Thanks for all your support.

Regards
Pratyush

Glad you got it sorted, but you really should consider using a newer distro than Red Hat 9.

Re:

Whether your DNS server address is correct in your above post...i.e., in /et/resolv.conf ?


If it is not correct it...and try pinging to your gateway...

It should work...


Go to networkconfig and try network applications present in your GUI...

that looks like a public IP address on your workstation.. so you are not behind a broadband router then ?

Make sure you enable a firewall for your machine..

suggestions: firestarter, guarddog
