mozilla configuration


I've added a linux box running Fedora 2.0 to my home lan, which has a dsl modem and a network switch that is set up for port forwarding to the linux box for ssh, http, etc. I have successfully shut off the firewall on the linux box so that I can ssh in from outside of the network.

When I bring up Mozilla on the linux box, it times out and can not connect to anything on the Internet. It must be a configuration issue. Can anyone help me?

Since I turned off the firewall using the graphic interface, iptables -L returns three empty tables for INPUT, FORWARD and OUTPUT rules.

Route returns the following:

Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.0.0 * 255.255.255.0 0 0 0 0 eth0
169.254.0.0 * 255.255.0.0 0 0 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 0 0 0 0 lo
default dslmodem.domain 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0

Does this help?

Hmmm ... looks alright.

What is the dns server for that machine, what's
in /etc/resolv.conf?

resolv.conf contains the following:

search domain.act.dsl.tmp
nameserver 192.168.0.1
nameserver 205.171.3.65

I don't know how to figure out what DNS server it is configured to use. How do find that?

DNS = nameserver ... it will chose the top entry
in resolv.conf first, then the other if the first one
doesn't respond...

Can you ping those machines from your linux-box,
can you also try to telnet to port 80 on any server
(not on your LAN) ...


Cheers,
Tink

I can ping both of the addresses in resolv.conf

However, when I enter telent www.yahoo.com 80

It first says that it is trying 1.0.0.0 and then it finally timesout.

Did I have the telent command right?

Maybe the primary dns server is screwed ...

www.yahoo.com =
Code:
www.yahoo.com is an alias for www.yahoo.akadns.net.
www.yahoo.akadns.net has address 66.94.230.49
www.yahoo.akadns.net has address 66.94.230.48
www.yahoo.akadns.net has address 66.94.230.36
www.yahoo.akadns.net has address 66.94.230.50
www.yahoo.akadns.net has address 66.94.230.43
www.yahoo.akadns.net has address 66.94.230.39
www.yahoo.akadns.net has address 66.94.230.44
www.yahoo.akadns.net has address 66.94.230.35
Not 1.0.0.0

Try one of the addresses (IP numbers) above in your browser.


Cheers,
Tink

ok, when I enter a ip address directly, I do get to yahoo, even though the images are not displaying correctly, which another problem.

I just finished changing the resolv.conf file to contain dns addresses that I have on the the two windows machines on this network, that work fine with IE.

Voila, it works, now, including the images on the Yahoo page.

Thank you for your help.
