I shared the DSL connection and tried to connect to the Internet in Redhat and it was successfully acomplished. The bottle nick is Sun................I can ping the PC from Sun and I can ping the Labtop too..........

I need step by step instruction along with command if possible please.

The easy way to do it is to run "sys-unconfig" command to unconfigure the box, then
reboot the system and following the screen instructions to fill in your network configuration
infor to get the box connet to you network.

Or
you can following the instructions in the following page:

What exactly is the problem. Are you not getting out onto the internet.

I assume that it is running a valid IP address on your network, since you can ping it.

I suspect that you will have to set the default gateway and the DNS server to point to your DSL gateway. Try this:

To set the default gateway, enter the IP address into a file /etc/defaultrouter.
Then either reboot or run the command:
route add default `cat /etc/defaultrouter` 1

To set the DNS server you need to edit the /etc/resolv.conf. Take out any entries already there and add a line in:
nameserver  xx.xx.xx.xx
replacing the x's DSL IP address.
This change should be dynamic. No need to reboot or restart anything.

I checked all the files needed to be modified and all the entries seems to be correct. When I open Netscap and try any URL address to give a message saying Netscap is unable to locate the server URL address, Please check the server name and try again.

Another thing regarding the DSL IP it is dynamic and keeps changing so I cannot set it as the DNS server. The DNS address given by the ISP is different which is their DNS address. is this what you mean?

when I try to ping the DSL IP it indicate a message saying ICMP Host Unreachable from gateway ultra30 (xxx.xxx.xxx) IP address for icmp from ultra30 (xxx.xxx.xxx)IP address to DSL IP (xxx.xxx.xxx)

then at the end it declare that the DSL IP is alive
