http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi all! I'm new to this forum, so hello. My problem is the following: I can only connect to the internet and download through the FTP, but not through HTTP. I am in a hospital at this moment and have a netbook (Lemote Yeelong). Also there is a computer here with internet access. I would like to access the internet by using the cable from the computer. I configured my netbook just like the local computer (same host name, same MAC address, DHCP), just to be sure. I can ping google.com and I also can download from ftp.debian.org through ftp. However, when I try to connect to google.com through epiphany, it just loads and loads without success. I hope you can help me, Thanks, badkeks (HowTos)
