Root has full dial-up and internet access with mozilla.
However, as a user I can only connect to the ISP, ping the ISP, but mozilla and konqueror have the same error: "cannot resolve…"
I tried to ping corel.com and then its number directly, no success as a user.
I come to the conclusion that it is a permission problem.
Can you please suggest where to look?
I have spent all weekend installing the linmodem, that now works, but I do not understand yet what/ where the permission is about for the net connection.
I use mandrake 10.1 CE.
I downgraded the firewall setting to normal instead of hig. No success
I insmod slmodem (or whatever it is) as root via a CLI.
I start Kppp from the user icon (not root)
Root access to the net is full via Kppp and wvdial.
In case it helps:
