Solaris X86 pppd

When I connect to my ISP via pppd, it lets me ping the DNs, but that is it. I cannot go anywhere else. IS there anything you can think of that might cause this?

 It's interesting you can ping the DNS servers by name ... do you have them listed explicitly in /etc/hosts ?
  A /etc/resolv.conf file will be helpful, which should read -

domain newcastle.edu.au
nameserver 134.148.24.1
nameserver 134.148.24.3

  Of course - replace 'newcastle.edu.au' with your own domain, and the two nameserver IP's with the appropriate IP addresses.

  The netstat -r seems fine; it shows your immediate routers - so, it is good that it is trying to route your network through the ppp connection.

  See also if your system has a /etc/named.boot file - if so, add this --

forwarders  134.148.24.1 134.148.24.3

  Again, though, replace the DNS server IP addresses with those that are appropriate for your ISP and domain.

When you say you are pinging the DNs, do you main the DNS servers?  Are you pinging them by name, or by IP address?  Can you access any other sites within your ISP's domain?  Can you access external sites by IP address, rather than hostname?  Have you tried using the traceroute command?

David, what I mean is that I cna ping the DNS server of my ISP by name or IP and that works but when I try anything inside of it, or outside o fit, it can't be found. I think I need a good asppp.cf file and a good resolve.conf. When I do a netstat -r it shows 4 entries...two of which are the ipdptp0 and then one ppp0, and one lo0??? Any I deas??
