Incoming, but no Outgoing Access


Hello. I recently purchased a dedicated root server at 1and1.com. I can SSH into my machine just fine, but I can establish any outgoing connections (no ping, no wgets, no ftp, etc). The DNS lookup seems to be working, because a ping of google resovles to 66.249.85.104, which is indeed a google IP.

I've never had a machine which allowed incoming connections, but couldn't see outside. Any ideas what I need to do?

You'll probably need to check with 1and1.com to find out if they are blocking outgoing access, what ports and services, etc... its probably to protect their servers.. etc. Allow the incoming of services you have running, block all others for full protection..

That was the first thought that came to my mind as well, but I thought it was strange that my dedicated server is blocked, but my other (much "simpler") hosting plans there are not. hmmm.

More details of your server would be helpful then or a call to 1and1.com's support will clarify their default settings perhaps.. but without any details, were as clueless as you are unless you want to give us full access..

I've sent an email off to 1and1 support. I thought that there might have been an internal outgoing firewall that I might not be aware of ... but I nothing I did would go outside. Thanks for the help though!
