Hmmm... I need some insight to solve this one.
I've set up a FC1 box to access the web through an ADSL device on a UTP network (ie
not USB config).
I can ping DHCP-assigned IP 220.127.116.11 say.
I can ping P-t-P addr 18.104.22.168 (gateway?) with mask 255.255.255.255
So the device setup and the routes seem to fit.
I can't ping DNS 22.214.171.124 say, Ctrl-C shows packet loss.
That has not to say much. ping is not the almighty tool much people take
$ ping 126.96.36.199
PING 188.8.131.52 (184.108.40.206) 56(84) bytes of data.
From 220.127.116.11 icmp_seq=4 Packet filtered
From 18.104.22.168 icmp_seq=5 Packet filtered
You easily see, the filter ICMP.
I can't ping canonical names www.cnn.com
say, Ctrl-C doesn't
even report a response.
filters ICMP packages too. So a ping has to show you 100%
I get ping replies. So try that target.
I've added all sorts of combinations and permutations with
'route add', alack.
It seems as though the further one moves away from the low level functionality, the less
name resolving etc one 'sees'.
I've this going before, but can't remember how.
I am aware of the naming issue in the 'Internet Connection Wizard', where one has
to enter 'ppp0' as the provider name.
Any insight is appreciated.
Check the output of "route", the default route has to point to the ppp
Check the settings in /etc/resolv.conf to have valid nameserver entries
(take the DNS server from your ISP).
Check /etc/hosts file to have the line for name resolution for
