Do you get any messages when you try to connect w/ lynx, netscape or gftp?

No, it just keeps trying to locate the site.

Do you not happen to be behind a firewall? The ports like 80, 21 etc.
may be firewalled by your provider to make you use his proxy and save
bandwidth a bit.

Make sure it's not the case. Can you e.g.

$ telnet www.yahoo.com 80
GET / HTTP/1.0

? - does it work?

Have you tried any of these programs with just an IP. I suspect that you
do not have DNS setup right. Get the DNS IP's from your provider and add
them to the hosts.resolv file. Good luck.

1. Printcap OK, Postscript OK, together NOT OK - HELP!

I am trying to setup Postscript support for printing with lpr on a Laserjet 4L.
I have modified printcap and written a filter using ghostscript, but not
success.  Can somebody help?  Here is my setup:
printcap:       lpps|hpljet3:\
                        :lp=/dev/lp1:\
                        :sd=/usr/spool/lp1:\
                        :sh:\
                        :sf:\
                        :mx#0:\
                        :of=/usr/spool/lp1/hpps:
hpps:           gs -q -sDEVICE=ljet3 -sOutputFile=- -

When I use "cat file.ps | hpps | lpr" (with my text-only lp setup) it works ok,
but when I try to use "lpr -Plpps file.ps" I get "Ghostscript: Unrecoverable
error, exit code 1".  Any ideas?
