I've just finished my LFS, installed on my laptop. Network is fine, I've
pcmcia-cs package. Ping-ing hosts on my network works fine.

I'm connected to the internet through an ADSL router. My LFS box can ping
router as well. Everything works fine.
What else do I need to do to be able to connect to computer outside my local
Because when I tried to telnet to my university computer, it says :
"Trying <-- resolved IP address
telnet: unable to connect to remote host: Network is unreachable"

it seems to be able to resolve the IP address given the ... umm. u know...
the non-numeric notation.

Can anyone share a light on this ??? Thank you... :)

Best regards,
