i am fairly new to linux and am using rc2 on a vps (virtuozzo) machine. i am using it as a web/mail/ftp server for my websites. i have finally gotten things to how i want them and feel great about managing it.
recently i installed updates (using apt-get upgrade) to the machine and a few things broke. i am working my way through them and the latest thing is that iptables don't seem to work correctly. i try to setup rules using a bash script for vps machines (which worked great before my updates) and they don't work. here is a snippet of the response:
iptables v1.2.9: host/network `your_main_IP' not found
Try `iptables -h' or 'iptables --help' for more information.
looking through my logs i noticed these lines in boot.log that werent there before my updates and reboot:
Jul 7 12:59:34 server ifup: RTNETLINK answers: Network is unreachable
Jul 7 12:59:34 server ifup: SIOCADDRT: Network is unreachable
i'm thinking that these must be related?? any help would be great....
