Thanks for the response Richard.
I was using both of those suggestions. I downloaded the latest tcprt update
from quics and that fixed most of my problems. I still can’t ping “some”
domains, qnx.com comes to mind. I can ping locally and some domains like
tolltex.com (our website hosting server). Whats really strange, is I can
ftp, telnet and web browse qnx.com, I just cant ping them.
For now my system is working well enough for me to get my work done, but I’m
still interested in the problem and what if any effect it has on my system.
I’m not real clear on how ping resolves its network address, or why it can’t
reach qnx.com, but I’m open to suggestions.
UPDATE: I just tried pinging qnx.com from work on a windows box and can’t
get through there either. The name is resolved to a net address, then the
requests just time out.

If you are trying to ping an IP address on the same subnet, it should
work, but if the destination is elsewhere or you need to access a DNS
server on another net, you need to define a gateway
/usr/ucb/route add default xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
You may also want to add “lookup file bind” to the end of resolv.conf.

OK, I reset the BIOS to defaults and now “nettrap query” matches
regards to irq and IO.
now when I try to ping I get “No route to host”
my resolv.conf file looks like…
lookup file bind
and my host looks like…
any ideas ?

Im having trouble configuring my system with a 3com 905B ethernet card
qnx425 patch D (tried E as well).
nettrap query returns
Net.ether905 -pd800 -i255 -l1 &
If I use “nettrap start” I get a screen dump and the system is locked
I tried setting the IRQ manually to 10 in my bios and then started the
Net.ether905 -i10 -l1 -v &
The verbose data from net ether905 reports…
port d800 (same as nettrap query)
mac address looks good, no errors
Now Im off to start my TCP stack
Socklet hostname & (hostname defined in /etc/hosts as 126.96.36.199)
dhcp.client hostname &
The dhcp client reaches my dhcp server and populates the
file with the correct nameservers.
next I try
all iterations block until I hit Ctrl^C
It seems to me that if the dhcp.client can reach my dhcp server that
Net.ether905 is working, is this correct ?
I also tried configuring the socket manually but still get the same
Thanks in advance
