    strange networking problem


    to be short:
    -fedora core 8 machine
    -firewall on / flush the rulles
    ### Input Rules ###
    Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
    target prot opt source destination

    ### Output Rules ###
    Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
    target prot opt source destination

    ### Forward Rules ###

    The machine is remote hosted, i can access it via SSH, the website runs fine...but i can't ping any internet host
    the default route is added , hosts.conf ok, i've stoped the firewall!
    I'm stucked! I can ping the default gateway!

    i'll apreciate any ideeas

    thanks

    So...this is a remote Fedora machine that you are remoting into via SSH?

    And from the Fedora machine you can ping the Fedora's gateway but not anything outside the local subnet?

    If this is correct, then a router or gateway system beyond the local subnet is blocking ICMP - it's not an uncommon setup for ICMP to be blocked.

    yes remoted machine ..and i can access access it

    i've made a call to the "hosting company" for some reason they say my mac address had changed, and i did get blocked from accessing the internet

    i'm pretty sure that the mac address can't change byitself, and they messed up the router config...

    anyway it is working just fine now i should consider a webhost change

    thanks
