I have a problem with DNS when connecting to AT&T Worldnet or IBM Net
through ppp-2.3.3 on my Linux-2.0.33.
The situation is that, I can successfully connect to AT&T Worldnet or
IBM Net with PPP, and they even assign me the local IP address without
any problems. I perform "ifconfig" to check if ppp0 is connected.
Everything seems fine but when I invoke "route" command, it takes so
long time to get route information. I "ping" other existing host in the
Internet but no responses come up instead of backing to me the error
messages which say my Linux PC cannot reach that host. Above situation
seems that even I connect the ISP successfully but I cannot enter into
the Internet. Of course, I defined the /etc/resolv.conf and
/etc/host.conf very well under guided direction.
I have ever doubted whether my ppp script is correct for connecting
once. Thus, I used the same script to try to connect the access number
at Cleveland State Univ.(My wife has an account at there). It was no
problems with connecting and successfully entering into the Internet.
So I got confused.
Did someone here undergo such case as mine when connecting to AT&T
Worldnet or IBM Net? If you are, pls drop me some lines to fix that.
I appreciate any comments from you. BTW, if possible, pls email me at
Thank you in advance.
