OT/PPP + TCP/IP

Hello,

I am new to this group, and need some advice. I have a Quadra 750, with 24MB RAM, and am running a 601 processor upgrade. The system is NuBus. MacOS version 7.5.3 is running. I have Open Transport 1.1.2 and "classic" networking as well. As well as PPP 2.5, MAcTCP 2.0.6, and Open Transport/PPP.
I can use MacPPP  to connect to my internet provider and then can use Eudora with no trouble.
However, if I select Open Transport networking with the network selector software and then go thru all the configuration of PPP and TCP/IP, I can connect fine with PPP to my internet service provider, but Eudora, Netscape will not complete  the connections. They report that the servers do not exist.
It seems that there is something missing, yet I have entered my SMTP, POP, NNRP server ids etc, and everything is fine with MacPPP and MacTCP (ie, classic networking). Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks, very much

Sounds like you dont have your nameserver setup right.
When you configure TCP/IP, make sure the Name server addr.:
field has the right numbers. To make chagnes,  may need to change your "User Mode..." from the "Edit" menu.

You can get the right Name server IP numbers by loading classic networking and looking in the MacTCP control panel.
