We have a QNX 4.25 development system here at work,
and a TCPIP ethernet network for all our Win98/NT
I’ve been trying to get the QNX machine onto the network,
but with no success. Our connection to the 'Net is done
using an ISDN hub which hands out IP addresses as needed, it
also does address translation. As a result, all
the Windows machines are set to obtain IP addresses
automatically - so I don’t have any entries to put into
my /etc/hosts file
I suspect I’ll need to use dhcp.client to set up the
QNX machine, but when I try this, I still can’t ping
If I try entering a default route to the hub’s IP address,
the only way I can get “route” to accept anything is
route add default aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd
where aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd is our internal IP address for the hub
( our gateway onto the 'Net )
But this seems to remove a lot of stuff from the routing
tables, and stops ping from working.
Is there an easy-to-understand FAQ or guide to how to
get a QNX machine onto the 'Net through such a network?
I have tried looking through the knowledge base on QDN,
but there don’t seem to be any examples dealing with
a DHCP system like ours…
