Netscape problem

I am running Red Hat Linux kernel 1.2.13. I use SLIP to connect to my INP. Telnet and FTP are working but Netscape and Lynx are not working. They initiate the connection (Host contacted) and then just hang there with a message:
Waiting for response.
Lynx after several minutes, displays message:
Socket read failed after 5000 times.
I could ping all Web URLs and tcpdump shows that browser is reaching the right address.
Please help?

Try setting your browsers to use your ISP's proxy to contact the remote site. That is in the Networking options for netscape, and usually in /usr/lib/lynx.cfg for lynx. You may also be able to export the environment variable "http_proxy" with the URL of your local proxy.
