Assuming for the moment that your machines IP address is 129.146.xxx.xxx you need to check your subnet mask settings (ifconfig -a) as well as your default route (netstat -rn). Most likely one of those settings is not correct for your network. -- Scot L. Harris [email protected] Anything is good if it's made of chocolate.
