Have you entered the IP addresses of your new ISP's nameservers in
resolv.conf and made it world readable?

Hello

I recently got another ppp-account at an ISP having in mind to
do telnet and ftp-sessions. Unfortunately this doesn't work.
Reading e-mail and newsgroups by netscape3.01 is fine, but also
looking up a html-page fails. I use all the same specifications
at another ppp-account, and there it all works fine.

Yes I did. My /etc/resolv.conf looks as follows:

nameserver 131.152.1.1
nameserver 131.152.1.5
nameserver 192.168.100.1                              

the last entry is the nameserver of the ISP. I also tried deleting
the others but this, no effect. I am able to ping myself, but not
even the peer...

==================

for mails omit ".delete_me" in above address or mailto

Shouldn't there be a 'search .' on the first line there?
I dunno exactly what it does, but it is there on my machine
and my machine works :-)

If you ping the peer with the direct IP number, does that work?

1. ping -g 'gateway-IP' 'host-IP' DOESN'T work!

Hello guys,

I have a machine with two interfaces, each connected to
a gateway. This two gateways are then connected to a common
network and I want to ping another router in that network over
the two interfaces.

Looks like this:
                        Gateway 1
                           ----
               ------------|  |------------
              | Subnet A   ----            |
            ----
Machine    |  |                Subnet C   Router
            ----
              | Subnet B   ----            |
               ------------|  |------------
                           ----
                        Gateway 2

Now if I type following on my machine it doesn't work:

ping -g 'IP in Subnet A of Gateway 1' 'Router-IP-address'

But if I do a ping (Defaultgateway is 'IP in Subnet A of Gateway 1'
(without -g) it works fine:

ping 'Router-IP-address'

Can someone give me a hint? Thanks in advance!

Cheers, Walter
