installation problem


i have this cable internet and i need to install a login file through which i will be able to log in to the internet. there are two major problems i am facing right now.

1. i dont know the extension of the file i hav to install. it doesnt show. is there any way that i can know the extension or the kind of file it is.

2. i tried ./crclient......
it starts the installation by asking me the IP address and stuff. but in the end or atleast that is wat i think, is says "segmentation error".

kindly help. i am new to linux so please take care of the lingo as i m not aware of it much. i am using red hat 9.

thanx a lot.
regards.
aman

Did some research on google, and all I found about crclient were your threads on this forum . Where did you get that program from? Are you compiling it? How do you install it? Is it a package? Which distribution are you running?

Btw I'm a 19 years old girl: Sir isn't quite appropriated .

If ./crclient works then there is no extension at all.

It's quite common in Unix/Linux world.

The name of the file is simply "crclient".

maybe that is just a script/program u r running

also try to check what versions on linux(redhat/mandrake etc etc )ur cable provider supports


also check if ur modem driver has been installed


also pl. india is not new to linux ,since u r new to the community that is the reason

also the linux community knows no boundaries,we have the whole community here to help each other out

Hey ! Man!
Do One thing...
First of all...goto the directory containg crclient file in shell prompt...
Now Issue Command: ./crclient -s
It'll be asking u abt all the questions related to Ur Server Address etc.
Now after complition of this command just issue: ./crclient -u <username> -f /root/crclient.conf
Before this and after complition of first command , just check the availability of "crclient.conf" file in the /root
or simply u can issue command: ./crclient -u <username>
and ./crclient -l --------- For Logout


One most important Question: Have u setup all the Ipaddresses like IP, Domain, Subnetmask, Gateway, DNS etc. for Ur LAN Card???
