Hi guys and gals,
I'm quite new to this but eager to learn and get to grips with linux networking.
I've just spent the last 3 hours attempting to get my debian server online so I can install some packages I'm interested in. I have been reading post after post and attempting some of the suggestions I found there like using a static IP, gateway etc and editing the resolv.conf file but so far I still haven't managed to work it out. I would be very grateful if one of you could lend me some assistance.
I've setup the server to use DHCP (assigned by the router) and it seems to be working. It gets ...
IP Address: 192.168.2.114
route entries are...
192.168.2.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
default 192.168.2..1 UG 0 0 0 eht0
pinging google.com at this point I get unknown host so I edited the /etc/resolv.conf file to add my ISPs DNS address's
with the same result
so changed it back to
I can ping both private LAN addresses and Public address succesfully but DNS resolving doesn't seem to be happening.
Any ideas, suggestions?
