my system is one of the nodes in LAN in my office. the problem is that i am not able to connect to the internet via this LAN although the LAN server distributes the internet to all the nodes. rest all nodes are windows nodes. my linux is fully configured for LAN and i get appropriate replies when i ping the local server
but on the other hand i am unable to open any website on the internet e.g. even www.yahoo.com
(and even other popular websites). when i ping yahoo or hotmail or anyother site it says the host is unreachable
. my ethernet card is configured and is activated. my local host and server IP addresses are also OK. i dont know where the problem lies.
i use Red Hat 9
. i am a new linux user.
