Can't access webpages using slirp

Post by bigmac »

Sometimes I am able to access one website:
But when I try to access another, this happens:

Sometimes, I can't access any websites at all; SheepShaver just dies saying "Segmentation fault". This is with "Ignore illegal memory accesses" turned on. With it turned off, it always dies with a segmentation fault when I try to access a website. It does this in Netscape 4 and iCab.

Here is my prefs file:

Which version of Mac OS are you emulating?

It totally crashes for me when I boot using slirp. It runs fine until I try to use networking, then it crashes. It'll even crash opening up the TCP/IP control panel if it's using slirp.

slirp networking is known to be not very robust, but I never heard of crashes when doing nothing but opening TCP/IP control panel. You can try removing TCP/IP preferences from the Preferences folder in System Folder and launch SheepShaver again. Then make sure the control panel is set to Ethernet and DHCP.

Which are your host and guest OS versions?
