can't reach new server

wresteling with a server for the past few days. finally got an older version of red hat on it. 7.3 to be exact. but i can't seem to get it on the nextwork completely. i can ssh out of it to one of my off site servers...but i can't ssh into it, nor can i ping the machine. i've already edited

and the

files. but that doesn't seem to be working. got any other places i can be looking or things i can be testing. maybe i forgot to install a package when i was installing the OS...if anyone has some ideas, i'd appreciate.

well, i think 7.3 was default with ipchains up

did you choose install with firewall option?

either edit /etc/sysconfig/ipchains
or /etc/sysconfig/iptables

Kill the firewall
/etc/rc.d/init.d/ipchains stop
