Unable to ping web addresses, but able to resolve them?


Recently set up a debian woody lan server, works great. Only boot into console mode, so I have never tried to browse the web.

I am currently trying to set up ddclient, and it is hanging when trying to connect to the dyndns server, tried IP address as well as web address.


What do i need to open up so it can ping and connect to outside web addresses?



TIA,

Boyd

Do you have a firewall? Maybe you're blocking your request or the replies?

Not sure if there is a software firewall installed by default with Debian or not? If there is a linux firewall on the box, I am unaware of it. This box connects to a router, but so do 3 other PCs that connect to the internet fine.


Any thoughts,

Thx for the feedback,

Boyd

Well, I'm not sure if it is installed, either. The best thing is to check. Run
iptables -L
If you have
Code:
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination
it's not running.
