No Internet, but 'ping' is working - RHEL3
I'm trying to access Internet or execute ssh connection using DSL connection (Teledat301 modem, RedHat Enterprise Linux vs. 3). However, in spite of many efforts - no success.
In Network Configuration, I have two devices set: (1) Ethernet card (eth0), and (2) xDSL connection - both were set up with the Internet Setup Wizard which comes with the system. xDSL connection activates nicely, but when trying to activate ethernet, it says: "Determining IP info for eth0... /sbin/dhclient-script: configuration for eth0:1 not found. failed."
Attempt to ssh or ping any known host names results in : "host name unknown" type command.
Only ping or traceroute with IP address as argument work.
Attached the output of some common commands I used
Thanks for helping!
shouldn't matter whether or not its dynamic...
some (many new) dsl modems have a built in DHCP server...they normally assign 192.168.0.x (provided you do not have a router, switch or hub connected to it...)
as far as the connection, if you are connected directly to your modem, all the lights are on, and the link status light on your machine are on, the problem is not in the physical connection. I am curious to know whether or not the activity light is on...when your not pinging that is....
also, try pinging the modem (should be 192.168.0.1, but may not be). If you have a reply...then you need to log in to your modem and change configuration on it.
