i am using VL 5.8 SOHO RC2. i used VASM to setup my ethernet connection. i have a fixed IP address (192.168.4.12). and there is a single gateway address (192.168.4.1) and DNS server (10.0.0.1).
i use vasm with root privileges and set all these details but these are what happens
1. the set inet configuration part does not want to set the IP address no matter how many times i try
2. if it gets set then the DNS doesn't want to get set. i have an XP machine nearby and the webpages come instantaneously...oh wait...not nearby...this is the XP machine
3. after a reboot all details of the inet configuration is launched.
4. all i can do is ping the gateway and ping the DNS.
can you please tell me how to set the gateway ip without using vasm. and how come the DNS ain't workin at all?
