from the command line type
su -
this will change you into root login
next type
this will enter you into easy config tools
select firewall and select no firewall (not a real problem except when
you are connected with internet accessiable IP from the outside world) 

have you tried a ping command to see if you are getting DNS resolution
ping www.redhat.com
if you get a response but cant get to a web page then try the above
entioned to turn off the firewall (if no response at all try ifconfig
(/sbin/ifconfig) and ping the IP address listed as the default gateway
if you get a response try ping <a server that is almost
always running> and see if you get a reponse.  If not well we may be
looking at a DHCP problem or something along those lines but we will
need some more info to figure out what to do from here.


PS jsut to stop a flame war before it starts if you send the ifconfig
results you could mask the first portion like xxx.xxx.xxx.12 where xxx
is matching numbers from the ipaddress and default gateway.

About a month ago our group purchased RH 7.3
I have loaded it several times but have been unable to make stmp and www

I think<G> it is a matter of firewall but am a real newbie
Have restored RH7.1 and have no troubles
Any suggestions greatly appreciated
