Loopback problem

Loopback problem

Post by Guy Beav » Sat, 15 Oct 1994 22:22:09



My goal is to get a SLIP going into a shell account with TIA.
I've read through the NET-2-HOWTO, and the TIA FAQ, and have
(apparently) successfully run a dip script, which appears to work.  
If I try ifconfig, I get something like:

sl0   Link encap AMPR AX.25 HWaddr
      inet addr 192.0.2.1 P-t-P 128.155.17.47 Mask 255.255.255.0
      UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING MTU 1500 Metric 0
      Rx packets 0 errors 0 dropped 0 overrun 0
      Tx packets 0 errors 0 dropped 0 overrun 0

However, I've apparently installed or configured something incorrectly,
because I can't even ping myself.

If I try "ping localhost" or "ping 127.0.0.1" I get:
      ping: unknown protocol icmp.

Or if I try "telnet localhost" or "telnet 127.0.0.1" I get:
      telnet: tcp/telnet: unknown service.

Can someone shed some light on this, or suggest a diagnostic
to reveal what I'm missing?

Thanks,

GM Beaver
