Description of problem:
I recently installed Fedora Core 4, and I discovered that I can only get to a couple of web sites. I can get to www.redhat.com, www.reptronmfg.com (my company's site) and www.insecure.org.
Funny, www.insecure.org BEGINS to load (you get the links listed on the left edge of the page) and then eventually times out.
I have no problem pinging www.google.com, www.yahoo.com and www.netscape.com.
I tried iptables stop - makes no difference.
No difference whether I am root or another user.
I can ssh into another linux box in the house, I can ssh into my new Fedora box from another linux box in the house. These things seem to be ok - I just can't get where I WANT to get on the internet.
I tried other web browsers on my fedora box - like lynx. Same thing - I can get to redhat, etc. but not other sites.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.just try getting to yahoo or google or netscape, etc.
Not enough information and obviously more a configuration issue than a bug.
Might be DHCP, routing problem, wrong IP etc...
