linux, ISDN & ISA

Postby zaeemarshad » Mon Sep 08, 2003 2:15 am

hi all
i have a problem regarding a desi cable isp setup. we have a 128k 2B channel link. at first we ran freesco and it ran fine but the only problem we had was that only a single 64k link was working under it and the second channel was disabled. so we moved on to ISA server which happily supported the both B channels. (we are using a 128TA i.e terminal adapter from dlink ; a usb model). anyway windows clients easily got on the information superhighway. the problem came when we wanted to connect a linux client. the linux client could ping the network and access all the resources except that it could not get on the net. even basic name resolvin didnt work. when i typed ping www.yahoo.com it would immediately retrun a message that host unknown. now plz tell me how can i remove this problem. i will be thankful for any help. thanks

regards

they r multiple but we often use world online. plz note that we r offering cable services and i am not a single user of some cable net. i hope u will help me. we want a ms free solution based completely on opensource. once complete we will start offering services for those willing to launch a modest desi cable net setup with linux that will definitely prove its ROI(return on investment) as we believe and what we have seen until now.

I could be wrong but looks like ISA Proxy may be the cause.

Please read the How-to by our member Raheel Abdul Hameed at:

apart from above check out following also:

Yup tariq bhai (mahin) is right!

Most probably its a problem with the isa server and/or a mismatched setting.
As mahin said, read that excellent howto by Mr..Raheel.It will surely help you solve your problem if it is caused by ISA.

Disclaimer: I have no idea what ISDN is or how it works.

zaeemarshad, please check out the [url=http://www.ipcop.org/]IPCop[/ipcop] distro. It's a specialized router/firewall distro. The credits page claims to support dual ISDN. In my experience it detects all the network cards out of the box and you have to spend about 5 minutes before you have a working router. At work, I've installed it on a 133 MHz machine and has been working like a charm. Is doing NAT, port forwarding, IPSEC VPN etc. The user community is very nice and helpful too.
