    not sure whats going on in my Linux box

    I have a Linux workstation having static IP and connected to a LAN. I can ssh to my Linux box , I can ping to my Linux box but the problem is I cant ping FROM my Linux box and cant access any URL

    I tried ifconfig which shows good results to me and chcked resolv.conf as well but when I did "ping -c 3" or tried "telnet <server1>" didn't work either.

    Not sure if I am missing something.

    Any help would be much appreciated !!

    What distro are you using and are you using a firewall. If you are not on a firewall you should be. Also can you post the output to the route command.

    I don't think a firewall is relevant to your problem..

    However I do notice that you have a public IP address and not a private one

    inet addr:

    You say you're connected to a LAN?
