IAK TCPIP Problem w/ PM Apps

IAK TCPIP Problem w/ PM Apps

Post by mille.. » Mon, 24 Jul 1995 04:00:00

Does ANYONE know why my PM apps (FTP-PM, TELNET-PM, WebExplorer,
NewsReader/2, Neologic NetSuite 2.1) CANNOT find Named sites ???
(like www.yahoo.com or hobbes.nmsu.edu)??????????

If I use the command-line versions (ftp.exe, telnet.exe, ping.exe) it works.
If I use IP addresses, it works.
If I use NetSuite 1.1, it works.
If I use Windows programs (like Mosaic or Netscape), it works.

I have a ZOOM 28.8 V.34 on COM2, using SIO 1.45, PPP,
The setup string I use is AT&F,
I have set "SET HOSTNAME=sccsicom" (my host name without '.') in

My internet Service provider says all configuration (like MRU and VJ
Compression) is negotiated through PPP.

I don't know where to e-mail IBM for information.

Any useful suggestion would be helpful.

they are wrong.
I could not get mine to connect reliably without the coorect MRU
but VJ compression might be different.

Look in your TCPIP/ETC dir to see if there is a file called resolv
That holds your nameserver.

Also, make sure the nameserver in your pmdialer is correct.

1. Problems with Warp TCPIP 4.02t and PM Apps

Hi people,
Some will know me from the the #os/2 channel from Undernet as AusMounty.
Well I have a question for someone out there, has anyone come across a
problem (such as my own) with connecting to an ISP running NT Server and
using DOIP or Injoy and not being able to have any communication between
say Comm/2 or any of the PMApps? This is going beyond the realm of
frustrating, it is downright pitiful! For some one out there please help?!?
