RedHat Linux 8.0 setup for a mail server with sendmail. Nothing was modified and all of a sudden I cannot connect to the internet, I believe that is why email cannot be sent/received anymore as well (the BIG problem). HELP PLEASE!!
I can ping the firewall and router, cannot ping anything outside our LAN, outside cannot ping the mailserver by name or IP. I talked to our DNS folks and they say everything checks out on their side.
