I installed Red Hat Linux in my computer but I cannot access Internet from my computer, I have set IP address on it also? Is there any mistake that I made or did not configure any stuff? Any one can help me please!
How can I access to internet from RHEL?
There are a lot of things can be the cause for your system that not to get your system internet access. Please check following things one by one..
1. You should check first your internet cable that are connected to your PC
2. Your IP address has default getway and DNS address is assigned.
3. Is there an IP forwarding is enabled ?
If is not, please confirm them
Type following command on your shell prompt
# echo “1” > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
Edit the following file with following lines :
# vi /etc/sysctl.conf
Replace 0 by 1 where you find
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 0
Hop you can now get internet access
