I think this problem has come up before, but I never saw a resolution.
I am running kernel 2.0.27, but I had this also with 2.0.6, and perhaps

I cannot connect to some web sites, and I can connect to these from
non-linux machines. I am running slip. The sites are:

When I try to connect, I get the "1% of..." message at the bottom of
Netscape, and it hangs. Telneting to port 80 from xterm and doing a GET
of the page also hangs, so it's not Netscape.

I heard mention of MTU settings and MTU Discovery, and if this is it,
maybe someone could share the magic. I am setting MTU to 1500 now
through dip.

Thanks, Joe
