Unable to access my ssh server and ftp server from the Internet, but smtp works
I've got a Suse 8.2 box, with kernel 2.4.23 and two ethernet interface eth0 (internal) and eth1 (public ip).
I've ssh server, proftpd, and qmail.
With or without iptables enabled I can't access my ftp server and ssh server from the Internet. The strange thing is that smtp (qmail) works great
I've noticed some strange things from ifconfig:
1. All my NICs have the same metric (I don't know how to change it) *
2. The TX bytes from my public interface (eth1) are always 0
3. The TX bytes from my internal interface grow continuosly when i go outside (surf internet, ...)
* May be this the problem ?
Some other things
When I try to connect to my ftp server from the Internet, it says "Connected. Wait for login sequence" then after some seconds aborts.
THe default route is through my public interface and my public gateway (infact I can browse the Internet, connect to my pop mail, etc...)
May be the outside traffic goes through the wrong interface ? But, if this is right, why SMTP instead works ?
