Cool Cannot Browse Internet

I have siccessfully installed Solris 10 on 1 of my PCs, and after 2 weeks finally got my internet to work.

During the process I discovered OpenSolaris and decided now that I have Solaris 10 connected to the Internet I would now try OpenSolaris, it must be easier right!!!

I have done everything so that my OpenSolaris is just like my Solaris 10 network configuration. However DNS just does not seem to work
The following are the contents of my OpenSolaris Config files. (these have been manually entered, so forgive anny typos)

ifconfig -a

lo0: flags=2001000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv 4,VIRTUAL> mtu 8232 index 1

When attempting to connect to the internet (firefox 3.1) I get the result Address Not Found
However if I type in a IP Address 202.27.184.102 the browser automatically returns Yahoo!Xtra and then I get the message Address Not Found.

If you need anymore info please let me know

Default

remove all the dns settings for Interface nge0 which you have done via GUI, make them blank

Removing everything from resolv.conf and just add

nameserver 192.168.0.1
nameserver 202.27.158.40


if this does not work then do

nslookup google.com and post the results

Thanks

Cool Cannot Brose Internet

Hi,
removed all DNS entries and Firefox still could not find the site.

Rebooted

Checked the dns tab, the entries that were in the resolve.conf appear to have been added into the DNS tab by the system. Firefox could still not access a named site.

[email protected]#nslookup google.com
Server: 192.168.0.1
Address: 192.168.0.1#53

Non-Authoritative answer:
Name: google.com
Address: 74.125.45.100
Name: google.com
Address 74.125.67.100
Name: google.com
Address: 74.125.127.100

Removed DNS Entries and retried
[email protected]#nslookup google.com
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

Rebooted PC
This time the DNS addresses were not automatically added and nslookup failed.
Added 192.168.0.1 and got the following result

[email protected]#nslookup google.com
Server: 192.168.0.1
Address: 192.168.0.1#53

Non-Authoritative answer:
Name: google.com
Address: 74.125.45.100
Name: google.com
Address 74.125.67.100
Name: google.com
Address: 74.125.127.100

Replaced 192.168.0.1 in the DNS Tab with 202.27.158.40 and received the following result:
[email protected]#nslookup google.com
Server: 202.27.158.40
Address: 202.27.158.40#53

Non-Authoritative answer:
Name: google.com
Address: 74.125.45.100
Name: google.com
Address 74.125.67.100
Name: google.com
Address: 74.125.127.100

These results to me show that there is nothing wrong with the DNS system (or is there) and could be a firefox problem.

Firefox->edit->preference->Network->Settings
No Proxy

Restart Firefox
Browse to Google
Firefox can't find the server at Google

Restart Firefox
Browse to 74.125.45.100
Firefox successfully returns Google (does not resolve name)

Firefox->edit->preference->Network->Settings
Auto-detect Proxy settings for this network

Restart Firefox
Browse to Google
Firefox can't find the server at Google

Restart Firefox
Browse to 74.125.45.100
Firefox successfully returns Google (does not resolve name)

Summary:
DNS just ain't working like it should be.

But I hope we are getting closer to a resolution

strange
DNS is working fine, FireFox should not have a problem with it

anyway try disabling IPv6 from FireFox and than try browsing

1. Type about:config in the Firefox address bar.
2. Type network.dns.disableIPv6 in the Filter box.
3. Double-click the network.dns.disableIPv6 entry to change it from false to true.

and you can also give some other browser like Opera Opera Web Browser | Faster & safer | Download the new Internet browsers free a shot

Smile Problem resolved with work around

It appears that this problem may have been caused by the Network Controller:
nVidia MCP61, as I installed another Network Card and I can now browse the Internet (and after re-installing opensolaris).
To evidence that it was the nVidia card I switched back to this card again and attempted to access the internet, however this failed, so I have now switched back to the card that works.

Maybe nVidia need to look at their drivers for this card.

Default Same problem

I have the same problem, but my card is not an Nvidia, it's a realtek.
I can ping any ip address on the internet from the terminal, but just can't access web pages in firefox or emails in Thunderbird.

It's a dual boot with Windows Vista (which has no problem at all with web access).

I made my IP addresses static in OSOL disabling the automagic nwam crap.

Suggestions?
