Been lurking for eons and have been downloading vmware images regularly. I have followed all the instructions on the mailing list as best I can and have got my interface up and configured. I can ping any IP address local or internet succesfully and I can start an ftp session and connect to an ftp server (184.108.40.206). --update-- I can login as user anonymous and have succesfully transferred small files. ftp seems to choke on larger files (progress indicator line ends with "stalled"). --end update--
What I cannot do is ping a URL. I created a /etc/resolve.conf with a "nameserver MY_NAMESERVER_IPADDRESS" in it but "ping www.microsoft.com" returns "error: unknown host: www.microsoft.com". Any suggestions?
Anybody thinking of creating a "ftp.bebits.com/pub/haiku" directory on bebits so we can ftp some haiku stuff to our vmware instances and really start to have some fun ? :wink:
