Dear all,
I have a small network(Windows NT),and i have installed a dualboot machine(Linux7.2 + windows workstation).
I'am unable to get access to internet when i boot in linux. In the browser setting, i have specified the name of the proxy server(i.e the windows NT server), but i just cannot connect to the internet.
Help required......
:roll:

Believe it or not, there are any number of things that could be wrong. Check to see if:
- you have a valid IP address
- the netmask you are using matches the network you're on
- you have a logical route that gets you to the proxy
- if you're calling machines by name instead of IP, make sure you have an active DNS service you're talking to
- if you're using DHCP, make sure you're receiving an IP address from the DHCP server
Nothing you put into the browser matters until these fundamental aspects are taken care of. You can go back into Windows and check these settings to see how that side is working.
