HELP! Mandrake 6.0 Internet connectivity
Hey I just downloaded and installed Mandrake 6.0 with KDE and need help getting an "internet" connection. I have my lan setup using SYGATE 3.0 and using sygate's DHCP from within sygate. All of my Win9x/NT machines connect to the net but the Linux machine just returns errors (I will post the exact error message when I return home from work). I CAN ping the Linux box from the Win boxes and vise versa. Any ideas? I am a total newbie when it comes to Linux! (I can get the linux box to connect to the web IF I type in the actual IP adress of the site...such as http://22.214.171.124 which is sysopt's ) but if I type http://www.sysopt.com it wont work. but it will work on the Win9X/NT boxes...What do I need to configure? and HOW!! lol
Here's the error posting!
Warning: the following hosts are unknown:
This means that some or all hosts will be unreachable: Perhaps that is a problem with your name server? If your site must use a non-root name server, you will need to set the $SOCKS_NS enviroment variable to point at the appropriate name server. it may or maynot be necessary to set this variable, or the SOCKS host preference, to the IP address of the host in question rather than its name. Consult your system administrator.
TIA for all posts!

Are your DNS (name) servers been set up correctly?
Also, you might want to try setting everything manually instead.
Thanks for the reply Dominus. but
. Where within linux do I change the network setup? also a side question where do I change the screen resolution?
What do I need to configure? and HOW!! lol

Type lisa at the command line. Then go through the System config -> Network config -> configure Network services or something like that. There should be a DNS entry where you can enter in DNS servers.
You can also edit /etc/resolve.conf manually by adding something like:
at the bottom of it. KPPP, my PPP program does this automatically and removes the entry automatically, but you probably could just leave it in there all the time.
As for the screen res, hit CTRL+ALT++ (yeah, the plus key [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img]). That will increase screen res. Hit CTRL+ALT+- (the minus/dash key) to lower screen res.
Hey Thanks Joel! I now have it working!! as for the sceen resolution that doesnt seem to work for me...But I will keep looking. Thanks again.
For me only Ctrl Alt - (on the number pad) works. And to change the depth I just run xwindows with this line.
startx -- -bpp 16 (or 32)
I will try that when I get home from work.
