: When I connect to my internet service provider, I get a dynamic IP address
: (viewable in /var/log/messages), am able to 'ping' the remote IP address,
: yet when I try to run 'lynx' I get 'cannot connect to host'.
: BTW, I did try to run Netscape, but got colormap errors. I decided
: to back away from Netscape for now.
Can you telnet, ftp, or rlogin to host on the other end of the connection?
If ping works and nothing else does, that usually means that one end of the
SLIP connection is in compressed mode and the other is not.
