i'm hoping someone can help me trace a mistake in mty
I have a 10Base2 LAN connected to 3 Debian 2.2 boxes a Win98SE and a NT
My desktop is used as a gateway to the Internet (IP 192.168.0.1) and my
Linux machines have it designated as gateway through "route". They work
fine together - including taking ny laptop on and off the LAN evey two
weeks as I travel.
The Win98SE box is set with a static IP and DNS enabled using my ISP's
primary DNS. The gateway is set to 192.168.0.1.
The linux box hosts are all the same and I have checked each to make
sure that it's IP matches hosts.
Resolv.conf has only "nameserver 188.8.131.52" - that of my ISP.
I'm wondering if this is missing something essential.
On the Win98 machine I was downloading an update 11.2MB into a 15.5MB
file when the network crashed - I was away for quite a while waiting for
it so I don't know if the link broke.
Following that I could ping on the LAN. I could ping the IP of the
other end of my ppp connection but nothing else.
Rebooting the gateway made no difference, nor did removing the NFS link
to my laptop.
I assume from this that it is a DNS problem but can't quite work it out.
I'd be grateful for any assistance on this.
