Can connect but nothigns goin on ...

By lump_16 ·
Hi,
I'm using Linux-Mandrake with a kppp dial up program. I can connect to the ISP no prob but whne I go to to netscape or anyhting else it doesn't recognize the connection and acts as if I'm not connected at all.

Any tips?

Thanx,

If you're getting a bunch of "server not found" type errors, it's probably a DNS problem.
Make sure you get the DNS addresses from your ISP, and enter them into your kppp settings. If it still doesn't work, you may have to edit them into your resolv.conf file (I found this was the case with RedHat's dialer).

That was it. I'm too use to Windows Dial-up didn't think about that. I'm also not use to waiting 15 minutes for apge to load on a 2400 baud modem. Everything else I have is winmodems,I need to invest ina good hardware modem now.
