Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

We have a firewall and all at the office access internet from Windoze by setting a Gateway address parameter on the IP properties, fine.
I setted up Suse 7.1 on my computer and I programmed (ussing YAst, sorry for the lack of knoledge ) the gateway to the same address and the DNS .
so right now, I can do ping to the firewall but I can't use the web.
If I do a dial up, I can surf the web fine, just not with the firewall.
If you can ping the outside world, then your internet connection is working, and you have a problem with DNS
if im having problems like this I try to ping the BBC (188.8.131.52) if you get a ping reply, then try pinging "bbc.co.uk"
you should get a reply, looking like this:
64 bytes from bogons.mh.bbc.co.uk (184.108.40.206): icmp_seq=1 ttl=248 time=46.2 ms
64 bytes from bogons.mh.bbc.co.uk (220.127.116.11): icmp_seq=2 ttl=248 time=43.7 ms
64 bytes from bogons.mh.bbc.co.uk (18.104.22.168): icmp_seq=3 ttl=248 time=40.9 ms
64 bytes from bogons.mh.bbc.co.uk (22.214.171.124): icmp_seq=4 ttl=248 time=48.6 ms
If you dont get a reply from the IP 126.96.36.199 then your gateway is down,
you if dont get a reply from "bbc.co.uk" then you have a problem with your DNS.
