- Subject: Network Trouble
I am having a problem with using the network from within Cygwin. I'm using
Win95 on a Toshiba Satellite with a Xircom PCMCIA network card. This seems
like a particularly trivial problem to me, so I apologize if it has a
particularly trivial solution; I *have* checked the FAQ, the manual and
I can run ping, telnet, ftp, internet explorer, read the newspaper, check
my e-mail and all that from windows, so I assume my Win95 network setup is
correct. From within Cygwin, however, I only get the following:
$ lynx www.google.com
Looking up www.google.com first
Looking up www.google.com
Making HTTP connection to www.google.com
Sending HTTP request.
Alert!: Unexpected network write error; connection aborted.
Can't Access `http://www.google.com/'
Alert!: Unable to access document.
lynx: Can't access startfile
I get the same if I try google.com's IP address (188.8.131.52).
I don't think this is a lynx problem, as I experience similar problems
with gnut (gnutella), another unix program that I run under Cygwin. All
the original windows programs that use the internet (such as ping.exe,
ftp.exe) run properly, even when run from within the Cygwin bash shell.
That's why I conjecture something must be wrong in my Cygwin setup. Am I
maybe just missing a package? Or should I twiddle something in /etc?
