I'm sorry, I don't think I have explained it
correctly. My normal box (just
called 'Grinny') is connected to the win98 router. The
win98 is a normal pc
setup with Internet Connection Sharing so it acts as
gateway and as DHCP server.
The win98 box is called 'mentor5'. 'Mentor5' routes
all incoming connections to
the wireless pci card that's connected to a free
wireless network that spans the
entire city (http://www.wirelessleiden.nl). So I don't
actually have an ISP, I
internet for free :-). So 'mentor5' gets it's IP
address from a local wireless
node that's connected (wireless) to the proxy server,
that also seems to run the
DNS server for the entire network (When connection to
the proxy is lost, I can't
ping the local node by it's name, only by its ip).
I did what you asked me, and put the line in 'hosts'
and ran 'ipconfig
/flushdns', but the result is exactly the same.
Allthough it does complain about
not knowing the name for 192.168.0.1, it does answer
my question and gives me
the _correct_ ip address of the server. If I do a ping
to the same server, it
fails because the proxy server won't allow pings to
the internet, but it does
resolve the ip address correctly. Do you really think
this could still be a DNS
problem, would I then still be able to browse the
internet with my browser? By
the way do you know how I can tell 'Grinny' that the
name for 192.168.0.1, is
'mentor5'? It does know that 'mentor5' is 192.168.0.1.
Thanks for all your help, I know you must be getting
tired of it (I know I am),
but one day I'll get it to work, this is personal now.
