no route to host problem

Post by Jo » Sat, 18 Sep 1999 04:00:00



Hello,

I am having a problem trying to telnet (or ftp) to our host at work.

I  am using a dialin ppp connection and can surf with Netscape okay, I
can ping and nslookup okay,
but when I "telnet xxxxxxx.com" I get:

trying yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: No route to host

/usr/local/ppp >netstat -nr

can anyone shed any light on the problem here, I know it is probably a
routing issue, but what to do to fix it I can not figure out.

I get this message because my work computer is behind a firewall.
Could that be it?

Try these for earthlink nameservers:

207.217.126.41
207.217.77.42

The routing is OK.
