i JUST got portable salix for my flashdrive and im having trouble with my internet.

this is how it looks:

SERVER NOT FOUND
firefox can not find the server at www.thissite.com

1. check the address for misspellings

2. check your computers network connections

3. if your network is protected by a firewall or proxy make sure that firefox is allowed through.

i think that my problem is eaither number 2 or 3, i know that there are no misspellings, i tried my site, google, bing, and more and the same thing happens.
i have the proxy set to defult, i switched it to auto detect to see if that was the problem, it wasnt so i switched it back to defult.

i think it has to do with my firewall....could it be windows vista's firewall? i love the program except for this, i want to keep the program but if this dont work out than ill have to get rid of it =(.

thanks for any and all help =)

Is Vista still running? If so, you may need to allow your Slax distro access to the internet. Click here for a guide on how to do this. If Vista isn't running, then we need some more information, like, what kind of connection you have - wired or wireless, DSL or Cable.

I'll be AFK for the next hour or so, so try that guide or post some more info, please :thumbsup:
