Cannot Download via. Wget, YUM, or any kind of downloading on Fedora 4


Hi, I am remote accessing Fedora 4 through SSH. I jsut got a new web server, and I installed webmin, adn while making modifications I somewhere messed up the configuration that allows me to update via YUM, WGET Files, and download aynthing to the machine. I can apparantly upload fine. My friend told me it was something with the DNS but I am not really sure. Can anyone explain to me possible fixes for this? Thanks.

What errors do you get when you attempt to download something?

And on a related note, what do you find in /etc/resolv.conf?

You should find the nameserver addresses there.

# wget -------------------------------------------
--21:44:13-- WebAddress
=> `vhcs2-2.4.7.1.tar.bz2'
Resolving voxel dl sourceforge net... failed: Host not found.

That is the error I get.

Ok, then you have a DNS issue. See "WhatsHisName"'s post above. Can you use any network functions on the internet?
