I havn't set up a gateway.  This is supposed to become my gateway to the
net (then I don't need one right(?!?)?)  I've got /etc/sysconfig/network

GATEWAY_IF=  #/dev/ttys1

should I delete the last two lines?

/etc/sysconfig/network-devices/ifconfig.eth0 as:



When connecting to the net ppp seems alright.
/var/daemon.log tells me named is listning and when dialing in that pppd
/var/dns_logs reports queries from my own IP.  I have installed bind

Some other network problems that may or may not be related.  wvdial only
connets when run as root.  otherwise ttyS1 is repotedly busy.  I cannot
get named to shutdown properly in the rc scripts(also connection
refused), manually I can.  I'm trying to tackle this one problem at a
time, but it may be related.

thanks for your help so far Bill, I try not to be silly but sometimes it
just happens.
