Hi, I'm using a debian woody box as my gateway at home, It has a network card for the local network (eth0) and a internal ADSL card for the internet connection (ppp0)
Everything was forking fine for the 2 years untill a few months ago someting happend.
The gateway still working fine and I can full access to the internet from any computer on the network, except fom it. I mean, if I log in to it (SSH2) I can't PING anything, on the local network or on the internet, even using the IP addreses.
i'm not an expert in linux, but i've been using it for a few years. I think is something related to the routes, but I don't know nothing about it.
So here is the output of my route command:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
188.8.131.52 * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 ppp0
