    Hi

    I am having the following problem: I'm running ISPConfig on an VMWare Server. The problem is that after a certain amount of time, the server stops responding to ping if there is no traffic initiated from the server. When I ping from the server something on the outside, it starts working. Can you please help me out? I need to be able to keep the server online all the time.

    You could create a cron job that pings some other host every 5 minutes or so:
    Code:
    crontab -e
    Code:
    */5 * * * * ping -c4 google.com
