I have this strange problem on my network. I using linux redhat 4.1
with a ppp connection to the Internet (ISP) as my gateway box. I running
two web server in my network, one is the linux box the other one is
running on SCO Unix. Previously the connection work without a problem,
but then strange thing happen.
The problem is that people outside of my network cannot access the
both the web server, but internally I can access the server fine.
The config file for both the web server allow all to access the servers.
Said that people outside trying to connect to my home page, the message
at the bottom of the browsers will say that it connecting to the web
server, and then transferring data. But it will time out with an error
messages saying that the server is not responding.
At the server side when I do netstat -c when the people trying to
connect I see this :
tcp 0 4767 <local address> <foreign address> FIN_WAIT1
At the web server log I see this :
<outside address> - - [date:time -0800] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 200 4766
I can go out to the Internet fine, without any problem, but cannot ping
to my network from outside, can only ping the serial ppp connection
FTP & telnet also giving the same problem, I can telnet and ftp from
outside to my gateway server through the server ppp ip address but not
the internal address.
My gateway local ppp ip address is 126.96.36.199 and the gateway
address is 188.8.131.52 and my network number is 184.108.40.206 with a
of 255.255.255.244. and my static route as follow :-
Kernel IP routing table
