dsl-bt-router -

linksys-vpn -

At first it seemed that you had a SCO server connecting to a DSL modem - but from your last post, I believe you are actually connected to the linksys-vpn router - please confirm you have no physical connection to dsl-bt-router - only physical connection to linksys-vpn.

Is there internal DNS being used? If so, try putting that nameserver in your /etc/resolv.conf and allow your DNS to work correctly (remove the dsl-bt-router from the nameserver entry). What is your IP? What routes are set up on your system?

Thanx for all your help with this,, there is no physical connection to the bt router ,,,only to the vpn router.We have 2 offices at different locations ,, which are connected together via dsl and the vpn routers,, our local ip's are 192.168.1.??? and 192.168.2.??? . We dont have a dns server on our network ,,

The ip on the unix box is

You might try setting up a default route. See this link on pcunix.com SCO FAQ. If you are running a version lower than 5.0.6, then build a startup script to do the command each time a reboot is done.
