I have a dynamic IP assigned from my ISP. I think the dip script is working fine since I can ping various internet addresses put my problem is: none of the internet apps I try
to use get past the "connected, waiting for response " stage. I have tried ftp,telnet, ircii, xirc and lynx - all
give the same message after giving the "connected" message. I'm new to linux and am not sure weather I have a network
config prob or if it's something else altogether. Heres my
routing and ifconfig info. to see if they look alright. If
look ok I just need an idea as to where to look next to get
some of these apps working. Thanks.

Your configuration looks fine but one thing that could happen is that because you use slip, you may use the wrong IP at your end (It may be in use by someone else)  Normally, when you dial in, you never get the same IP.  

I like to use PPP whenever I can so I would ask your provider if he supports it?

I checked the statistics based on the IP address that you gave me and this is what I came up with:

I noticed that your provider's connection to the internet is slow, (700 ms +).


Check your /etc/resolv.conf, it should say:
domain vernonia.ardvark.com
nameserver 206.58.129.150
nameserver 206.58.128.120

Make sure there are no extra spaces.
