I am running RedHat5.0 upgraded to 2.2.1 with all recommended updates.
I also use Netscape 4+ in several versions all of which show the same
A small number of servers establish a connection, download about 6k and
stall - permanently. Examples are www.hotmail.com and www.cdnair.ca.
Most servers accept my browser without difficulty, even the bank server
which I would expect to be the fussiest.
My internal network is using this machine as a gateway which I don't have
working again since the upgrade but this problem preceded the upgrade so
that should not be the answer. In addition I have my own nameserver on
this machine but again the problem predates the local nameserver daemon.
Is there a configuration problem which causes a few fussy servers to
reject connections that use domain names like linux.bogus locally even
though on the web they appear as being sourced from proper domains?1
