Lost the ability to browse webpages

Post by fklein23 » Tue Nov 06, 2007 11:57 pm

I installed QNX Neutrino a couple of weeks ago and have been
evaluating it as a replacement for Linux. I was surprised at how easy
it was to get up and running with Mozilla and Samba. At least I
WAS...

Then the PC I installed QNX on lost power and had to be rebooted. The
reboot was fast and seamless. But once it came up I could no longer
browse webpages and Samba no longer worked. ???? Any ideas?

Under QNX, I am a bit lost when it comes to basic controls (like the
network device setup under Linux) so I can't figure out what is wrong
with the port 80 connection. When I try either Mozilla or Voyager, it
tries to make a dialup connection. However, I can ping between QNX
and Windows successfully and I can do a remote login via ssh using
putty.exe from my Windows host.

smbd does not appear on "ps -ef" like it did before this
problem arose, and unlike Linux,

service smb restart and
service xinetd restart

do not exist. I am not entirely sure what the QNX equivalent is.

I think when I did this two weeks ago I did this:

nmbd
smbd

and it got samba going, but not today!!! :-(

Any ideas???

Thanks - Frank

For starters, run chkfsys. Then I would go into your home directory
and delete the .mozilla directory, and everything under it.

Please delete the server locks at /usr/local/samba/var/locks. The lock
files have the suffix *.pid
