Adrian, just from memory there are 3 steps to consider with transact.

Step 1: is ethernet up?

Step 2: is nameserver working

Step 3: ISP user/password (same as windows)

I suggest you check step 1 first as root
# ifconfig
# route
# route -n

what is output?

it is the same as normal network setup

If ethernet is working, can you ping google?

#ping www.google.com.au
# ping

report the outputs
