Here we go I think I figured out.
1-This is my setup.
Cable Modem connects to Cisco SOHO 91 router.
Cisco socket 1 is connected to the Dell Poweredge 750 running Ubuntu distro. IP 220.127.116.11
Cisco socket 2 is connected to D-LINK router PI-704 sharing with 4 other PC.IP 18.104.22.168
If you Ping 22.214.171.124 you should get a response no problem.
If you ping 126.96.36.199 No response.
This definitely confirms that Cisco router is not the trouble.
2- Internal Connection:
From all my PC on the Network I can view the web site doing this.
I can also manage ISPCONFIG with port 81.
I also do these commands and get successful DNS information from all PC.
On my Lunix BOX
Dig @qcrev.com works
On a Windows XP
This now confirms that the DNS portion is working fine internally.
Can some one confirm the following?
Where could I have gone wrong with the external signal for others to connect to my box?
I assume it’s in the /etc/hosts.conf
Internal IP 127.0.0.1
Static IP 188.8.131.52
Gateway IP 184.108.40.206
Subnet Mark 255.255.255.248 as per my provider
I have inserted 255.255.255.0 or I could not connect to the internet.
Could some one be kind enough to guide me in to where I should do the modifications?
