First, on startup, the correct things start up, just not all at once. Some things launch very slowly, including a Polipo caching proxy window, BOINC Manager, and GKrellM. I think they may all be things that launch TCP servers, but I'm not sure.
Second, when I launch a web browser, I can't get it to work through Polipo; I have to use "no proxy". When I try to connect to my Apache server, it times out. BOINC Manager can't connect to BOINC even though it appears to be running. When I try two instances of netcat, one receiving and one sending, in two xterms, they don't communicate. Using UDP mode doesn't help either.
What is going on?
I finally put the following line in /etc/rc.local, before the exit 0 line:
Code: Select all
