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.
