I have some problem with my dip. I downloaded NET-2 from tsx-11.mimt.edu
2-3 days ago. I configured and recompiled the kernel for SLIP.
While bootup, the system says : SLIP version 0.7.5 Ok
when I try to start dip in test mode, this is what I get.
$ dip -t
(none): Host name lookup failure
I am attaching my /etc/rc.net file ( I have SLS version of linux)
$ cat /etc/rc.net
# rc.inet1: configure the network interface
# Attach the loopback device.
/etc/ifconfig lo 127.0.0.1
/etc/route add 127.0.0.1
# IF YOU HAVE AN ETHERNET CONNECTION, use these lines below to configure the
# eth0 interface. If you're only using loopback or SLIP, don't include the
# rest of the lines in this file.
So, can anybody tell me what is wrong or missing in my configuration.
Or, what additional info I should post.
I have a 2400 baud modem on cua0 which works fine with kermit.
The address of my SLIP server is 220.127.116.11
I do not know if it is static or dynamic.
YES. I have gone through NET-2-HOWTO
