Internet access problems from terminal in Red Hat 8.0


Hi,
I hope some can give me a hand with this, I've been working on this for months. I am working on a fresh install of Red Hat 8.0

I am trying to install DRBL from terminal. Here is the command I've used so far, and the results...

[root@Horatio root]# wget http://drbl.nchc.org.tw/GPG-KEY-DRBL; rpm --import GPG-KEY-DRBL
--11:44:37-- http://drbl.nchc.org.tw/GPG-KEY-DRBL
=> `GPG-KEY-DRBL'
Resolving drbl.nchc.org.tw... done.
Connecting to drbl.nchc.org.tw[140.110.17.49]:80... failed: Connection timed out.
Retrying.

--11:47:47-- http://drbl.nchc.org.tw/GPG-KEY-DRBL
(try: 2) => `GPG-KEY-DRBL'
Connecting to drbl.nchc.org.tw[140.110.17.49]:80... failed: Connection timed out.
Retrying.

_________________________________________________________________________

I can access the web from the web browser and all the network connections are fine. I should point out that I am accessing the net from behind a proxy which I do not have access to. The people who run the proxy assure me there are no restrictions in place.

This is a fresh install with nothing but the full server install from the disks installed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers,
Clara

I think I've bypassed this issue for now....

Can anyone tell me what the package coreutils is and where I can install it, the DRBL installer says it cannot find it and needs it.

Many thanks,
Clara

Any reason for using Redhat 8?

This is very old (release circa 2003) and is no longer supported.

I strongly recommend that you get a modern, supported version of Linux. Fedora is the successor to the Redhat Community distros (like RH8), the current version is Core 6. Alternatively, Ubuntu, Suse, Debian are all excellent distros.

The coreutils package should be on the installation CDs. It is normally installed by default, as I think it includes bash, ls, rm ...

I hope this helps
