hi.
I am running netscape to look at my own homepage experiment with apache, but i have no network (ppp or ether or anything). Now my problem is that whenever I accidentally click on a link that points to somewhere else on the internet, netscape (3.01 or 4.03) freezes. How can I have the same situation as in my previous linux where a window popped up saying "cannot locate host" if i wanted to load www.apache.org for example.  

thanx: balazs

Hmm, have you set up routing for localhost etc? You could try "route add 127.0.0.1 lo" and see if it helps.

hi.
sorry, but my problem is not reaching localhost, that works fine. yesterday i also found out that netscape doesn't freeze when i click on a link to the outside world just it takes ten minutes to write out could not get address of host "www.redhat.com". What i'd like to do is cut down this time to 1 second. i guess this timeout can be set somewhere i just don't know where.

Try running named on your local system and having in your /etc/resolv.conf just localhost and see what happens.

sorry for the late reaction. i managed to solve the problem by simply not running named.init at boot, now when i click on an outside link, it pops up a warning window instantly.
