Default need help with ifcfg-eth0 cannot access server outside network

Using FC4, installed by means of "Howtoforge"
Installed fresh with 2 NICs, eth0 was a NIC card I removed, eth1 was onboard NIC. had trouble accessing email, so tried to re-do the ifcfg-eth0 files.
All seems fine on the local network, accessing it behind router to my static ip's.
From outside (public) cannot access www, email, not a thing...
I turned off ispconfig firewall. All worked ok when 2 NICs were installed,...I just opened a can of worms taking out the NIC card, trying to run on the onboard NIC instead!
I made all these look the same:

Did I miss a network config file, or something else files?
Did I do those 3 files correct?

I am not very bright, eh?
Thanks for any input,

You mean you had eth0 and eth1, and then you removed eth0? I'd say you then need the files


because you're using eth1. And as DEVICE in these files you should also use eth1 instead of eth0.

Can you post the output of

Default Thanks

I found out what was happening - I have a couple ip addresses that have not been used in awhile, cycled power on my cable modem, I can ping all the way out now.
