problem is that netscape (v4.61) stalls with the following:
Connect: Host www.wral-tv.com contacted. waiting for
this not only happens with wral's site, but nvidia's as well
as several others.
I can pull the site up with lynx, plus traceroute and ping
show no problems.
On "non-affected" sites, netscape runs fine, no slowdown in
windows machines will call the site just fine...
Works fine for me here ; what settings do you have in netscape?
netscape is configured for direct connection. Using another lynux box
as dial-in server with ipchains. Same problem exists on both this
machine and the one running ipchains.
All sites listed seem to work properly from our end and we are also
using Netscape configured for direct connection through a firewall
