Hi there,

i have a Problem..
i have a Visualize J5600 and HP-UX installed on it..

So i want to go Online with the machine and surf in the Internet..

But i dont know what i do wrong... Smilie

I installed HP-UX and run SAM

I am from Germany and my provider is T-Online.. my Router has the IP:

i use the router as DHCP Server

My config in sam is:

Network and Communications - DNS (BIND) - DNS Resolver

Query Order (1) - Server IP Adress (

Network and Communications - Routes

Destination (default) - Gateway Address (

Network Interface Cards:

DHCP is Enabled...

SO where is the Problem?

What does your /etc/resolv.conf say?

Can you ping by numeric address?

Have you tried "nslookup"?


nslookup www.unix.com

try "telnet" as an example....

Also, remember "traceroute".

Finally, try a static address configuration on your subnet that does not conflict with the router's DHCP.

192.168. ..... is a private IP range. Unless your router does a NATing OR you buy some valid internet ips, You will not be able to browse.

So give us more details, does it perform NAting ? Do you have any other hosts ( windows or linux ) which can goto internet ?

Do the following:
nslookup www.google.com

Does it find google? If not, your DNS may not be configured properly.

Try ping to your hostname and ping your router. Try ping by IP and hostname both.

I had same problems but with static IP's on machine like yours.

In SAM: go to Networking And Communications, choose name Service Switch, in tab of Type of information there is "hosts" section. There is search order for hosts, for the first one choose DNS and the second one /etc/hosts. make sure that in "If information not found" to choose "try next source".

Usually routers like yours have built in DNS server, so this solution should work.
