This is my first time posting a thread though I have used these forums 100's of times to setup and build servers from scratch. Such a great resource.
Anyways, tonight I am switching my in house server from a static IP on my router to a static IP with my ISP as I am allowed 5 IP addresses from them very good ISP.
None the less. My method was this. I switched my eth0 configuration to DHCP and let my ISP assign an IP then I used the information from my ISP to configure a static IP.
The problem is even the DHCP didnt allow me any connectivity though I was assigned an IP and nameservers without a hitch so I am guessing there is hiccup somewhere between my configuration and adatper getting out.
Here is some information.
Dstination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window irtt iFace
126.96.36.199 0.0.0.0 255.255.252.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
188.8.131.52 0.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
0.0.0.0 184.108.40.206 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0
Apparently my ISP was assigning the wrong gateway I dont know why. Got it worked out though.
Though on another note I couldnt assign the IP my router was using even after releasing it from the router I couldnt connect to my gateway. Though if I plugged the router back in and did a DHCP renew it would grab the same ip with the same gateway.
Kind of interesting anyone know why. I am not an ISP buff by any means.
