Web Server / Firewall Issue


I'm running MDK 9.2 right now (I know I need to update it) and was setting up an web server to host some sites on for remote access. I set up an FTP server and SSH as well. All that is working great ... from the local network.

I didn't install shorewall or any other firewalls on this box (I have a firewall before the box that's seperate, and I disabled that to test). For some reason, I can't access anything (SSH, Apache, or FTP) from anything but the local network. On the local network, everything works fine. I'm not even sure where to start looking right now. Any help / pointers / suggestions would be appreciated.

Actually, no ... is that indicative of a bad gateway? Which direction should I move here? I can ping anything on the local network, but anything external (google, or google's IP) gets "unknown host" or "Network is unreachable".

It does sound like the gateway is wrong you should be able to set the gateway by running "netconfig".

Or manually set it with:
route add default gw ip.of.your.router
