I am definitely not using a proxy from mozilla and it works through
the lan, just not through the ppp interface.
I did not intentionally set up a proxy for lynx either. If I recall,
this is done in lynx.cfg or by setting an environment variable-
neither of which I have done since I installed 3 days ago.
This is my 2nd redhat 9 install, but like my 50th linux install.
In redhat 9, is there a system wide http proxy somewhere that could
only effect ppp interfaces?
Other than iptables, what else in the 2.4.22 kernel can filter packets
for ppp interfaces or otherwise? I guess this question does not make
sense as the telnet seemed to work, but aside fromt proxy, what else
could be the cause?
Remember what I said? http doesn't work when the ppp box is acting as
an iptables nat either. A proxy should not affect these packets, but
regardless I dont think any proxies are in use.
Thanks for sticking with me on this.
