running into all sorts of problems.
I'm running RH 6.0 on a P75 with 24 megs of ram. My ethernet card is
a Linksys ne2000 compatible that is properly detected on eth0 at boot
up. I know I am at least partially connected to the internet, because
I can ping by IP and by text names. I can connect via FTP and telnet
to other machines, but get timed out because of the slowness of my
modem. I can send mail from my machine to other internet addresses.
Nslookup on my hostname comes back as correct. I can ping both of my
nameservers from my machine and others. I can pull up web sites
in Netscape by their fully qualified domain names, however this too is
very slow (5 minutes and counting to pull up Red Hat's site).
I *cannot* ping my IP address or machine name from other computers or
send mail to my machine from other computers. Also, as I mentioned, I
keep getting timed out (or give up) on ftp or telnet sessions because of
the painfully slow connection.
I am thoroughly confused, because I seem to have at least a partial
connection, and am able to resolve internet addresses, but I can't be
seen by anyone else on the internet! I followed the NET3 HOWTO and
I think my config files are all ok. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I think my hardware is adequate, but maybe not. Also, the cable modem
was initially set up on a Win98 PC using a USB port, not a regular
NIC card. Could this be causing any conflicts?
