Trouble connecting my RH9 box to cable modem


First off, I would like to apologize for my earlier posing 2.5 days ago. Unfortunately, I did not provide much information for anyone to eval my problem. Anyhow, I saw another posting similar to mine on another thread (#131618) and I followed some of the suggestions posted there. I still can't get a legit connection. Here is the output of some commands/files asked in that thread: Anyone here can help me?

Code:

But what is the trouble?

You can't navigate?
Can you ping?
Let us know more ...

I can't ping, telnet, browse, traceroute, or anything else of such nature. In other words, I have an IP but I can't reach anywhere outside my machine.

I can however run a copy of CircleMUD's stock code on my machine, but can only telnet to 127.0.0.1 since it appears that even "localhost" cannot be reached.

Are you running a firewall? The firewall might have ICMP requests disabled which will not allow pings.

I don't have a firewall. Unless RH9 has one built in, which in this case I don't know about. I don't think my ISP has a firewall either.

Put it this way: my computer runs WinXPPro, WinME, and RH9. I can surf, telnet, ping, etc. on WinXP and WinME. RH9 on the other hand, I can't do anything that accesses the internet like I can on Windows.

If RH9 has a firewall, can someone tell me how to find out if it's active and if so how to deactivate it?

type setup at a shell ass root, goto firewall options. and set to low.

although your eth0 seems to be fine.

Could be several things like the default gateway or your routers firewaall even.
