I configured ppp using KPPP for 2 separate connections, 1 for my ISP & 1 for
work. When I dial in to work I have no problems, can ping, ftp & access Web
pages through their firewall. When I dial in to my ISP, I can ping my ISP's
home page (or any other page), & I can ftp with no problem. But when I use
my browser (Netscape) I get the following:
www.whatever.com contacted, waiting for reply.
Then it just sits there & spins.
I'm pretty sure the DNS setting is OK since I can ping by web address & I
also get the above problem using IP addresses in the browser. From what I
understand, KPPP temporarily writes into the resolv.conf file, so I don't
think my problem lies there.
Also, I put in an ftp address in the netscape location bar & that works OK.
Again I use the same setup for work & everything works fine.
