I just installed Red Hat 7.2 on a Pentium 233 box and am having a little difficulty with my internet connection. I use ppp to dial into my ISP and it appears to be connecting good. The problem I am having is that when using Netscape (or any other browser) I can't get a response. I seem to be connecting to a URL fine, but I am not receiving anything. In Netscape on the status bar I get a message like:
Contacted. Waitting for reply..." but I never get a reply.
I first thought that perhaps I had the firewall setup to to deny any incoming packets, so I first used command 'ipchains -F' to remove any rules I also went into 'setup' and disabled the firewall. This still didn't have any affect. I am still not getting any incoming response in my browser. I am new to Linux so I'm not sure where/what to try next. Any suggestions?
