How is your network setup? Are you trying to connect via network (ethernet), phone line, or vpn?

asking questions doesn't mean being dumb, its just that you want an EFFECTIVE answer from an EFFECTIVE person. . .

are you setting up your network---> give some info on connection/hardware.

...or do you want to read webpages on the cli ? ( try links )
