    D211 in Redhat 7.3: Can only access IP addresses, not DNS

    Hi, I finally got the Nokia D211 to access my GPRS service in Redhat 7.3, with one problem. I can't ping www.yahoo.com but I can ping it's IP. Same when I try to access webpages.

    Secondly, according to guides on the web, my modem initialisation string should be

    at+cgdcont=1,"IP","internet";^sgauth=1

    However, this gives me "BAD INITIALISATION STRING" and the PPD service starts successfully when I use only:

    at+cgdcont=1,"IP","internet";

    How important is the ^sgauth=1 command?

    Thanks from Singapore

    Hello,

    Copy d211/scripts/ip-up.local to /etc/ppp/, and it should work.

    The "^sgauth=1" command is not familiar to me. I think it is not important if the connection works without it.


    Best Regards,
