I had some network problems on Debian Etch which turned out to be due to 
zeroconf being installed. Gkrellm was displaying, not the 
correct machine address, which is After messing with ifconfig, 
and route I eventually got a suggestion to remove zeroconf, and that has 
Gkrellm now showing the correct address.

KDE version is 3.5.5, and Konqueror is also 3.5.5. I also messed with KDE's 
control centre's, Internet & Network/Network Settings to try and resolve this 
problem, before being told to remove zeroconf.

Now I can access the Internet with Opera, and Firefox. I can also use KDE's 
Konsole with apt-get to get updates, and Kmail will retrieve mail ok, but 
Konqueror doesn't appear to be able to get access to the gateway, which is 
the Smoothwall firewall at This doesn't seem to be a DNS 
problem, as Konqueror cannot access the Smoothwalls webserver, which is 
accessable with just the IP address, and port.

Anybody got any magical KDE incantations to fix this?
