Regarding connecting to internet from RHEL 5 server

Dear All,

I have a RHEL 5 server of 64 bit . I have disabled the firewalls and added the name server also in resolv.conf.

I want to connect to internet inorder to link the machine with Linux Network.

# I could not connect to any website from this server for ex

ping is not working .

So I need to configure internet in this server...Pl give me some ideas on this.....

Not sure the file name in /etc,
But you need to edit a file similar
To name defaultrouter, with one line
For IP of router.

In another file you need to edit the
Box IP Address.

They are all in /etc.

Dear Murphy,

Is there any way to add http_proxy address in my export variable and then try for connecting it to internet and access google etc.

Apart from adding the proxy address profile , are there any additional steps that needs to be taken in accessing the internet.

I searched the docs mentioned by you..but could not get a clear picture...

The default firewall rules won't block access to websites.

You haven't shown us your configuration, so how can we know what's wrong?

Post the contents of:
  • /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 (assuming eth0 is the correct interface)
  • ifconfig eth0 (again assuming eth0 is the correct interface)
  • /etc/resolv.conf
  • /etc/sysconfig/network
Also, are you running "RHEL" on a physical server or in a VM?

Dear Scott,

Pl find the below details.....

Code: /etc/resolv.conf
search localdomain
nameserver      xxx.30.3.1 /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
# Intel Corporation 82576 Gigabit Network Connection
PEERDNS=yes network

I am running RHEL on a physical server .

Thanks and Regards
