Re: [vox-tech] Able to Login root however, unable to visit site

first, see if you can ping an outside ip. is one of mine you should be able to ping. If you can ping it, then your dns is bad. Put a valid
nameserver [ip address]
line in /etc/resolv.conf. use your ISP's nameserver rather than your own if you are having problems. make sure you can ping the IP and the dns packets can get through your firewall.

If you can't ping it, then your network is down.

either way, google is probably ok because it's cached.

When I am using Firefox, I was able to go www.google.com, but not sites like www.apache.org or even lugod.org. I was able to login as root and I got the same result. Then I tried ping on www.apache.org and lugod.org and the result was "unknown host".
I have no problem connecting to these sites from my windows machine.
