I have been running the 2.4.19-pre2 kernal for some time. I recently
needed to recompile the kernal to add the following items to my
kernal.config file due to some new VPN client software I want to run:
The unix, and INET settings were already present in my .config
I was able to compile with no issues, but I am getting some strange errors
1) I can navigate to yahoo.com, but not nvidia.com
2) I am told that my POP mail server is refusing my connection.
3) The VPN is configured via a browser on the loopback:port on my
machine. After about 2-3 minutes after starting the vpn client, I start
getting a similar message to in #2, this time concerning the loopback:port.
I made no modifications to the modules between the two compiles.
I have checked, and I don't seem to be runing IPtables or IPchains. The
behaviour looks like I've got some type of filter running (even when I
am not running the vpn.), but I can't think of what could be.
Does anyone have any suggestions of things to check?
