Not sure if anyone can help me with trying to get my Internet connection up and running using IPCop 1.4.21.  I downloaded and installed IPCop with no problem.  I am doing a very basic network configuration with a static IP from my ISP on the red interface and my network on the green interface with no DHCP service needed for the internal network.  I put the static IP, DNS IP, and gateway IP addresses onto the red interface with no trouble.  I have my static IP that I am using on the green interface.  

I set my computers gateway address as the green interface address and use the same two DNS server addresses that was given to me by my ISP.  I cannot get any web pages to load up.  I try to ping something directly with an IP address and still nothing.  I am able to ping the gateway address that was provided to me by my ISP but I cannot ping the DNS servers provided.  I know that they are working because I can ping them from another location.  

I am stuck as to what to try.  I am pretty sure that everything is configured right in IPCop.  Below are some screenshots of my configuration.
