Verizon aDSL setup with static IP address RH9 server
This may not be specific to Linux. I am setting up an RH9 server with one ethernet card.

The server needs an inside static IP address on the a 2 workstation network connecting through a router:


The router:

How can I then setup my aDSL properly. I add the connection with username and password and activate it. This works but I cannot get it to PING an outside IP address. Internally the PING works fine.

So is there a way to do dynamic xDSL on a statically defined IP address?

Thank you.

look at your /etc/resolv.conf file. is there anything there. if no, add

nameserver x.x.x.x
nameserver x.x.x.x

and you have set the gateway on the linux box to the ip of your router right?

x.x.x.x being the ip of your dns servers.

to see if you can get out at all, try pinging

if you get a reply it is a dns issue, and the above should work. after you add the names restart the pc, or restart the services network and xinetd if you know how. restart will work if not.

let me know if this helps.
