Cannot ping past my ISP


I have tried this with pppsetup and kppp now and everything appears to be configured ok but I can only seem to ping my ISP and nothing else get returned.

On my browser this is manifest as being able to access my ISP domain name only.

Whois seems to work ok and I don't think this is a DNS problem because I choose dynamic in kppp and when using pppsetup I copied the DNS IP from /var/log/messages that showed up when using kppp.

I have nothing (as far as I know) configured in iptables so I am puzzled and slightly annoyed by this. Browsing my ISP's site is getting tedious!!!

My /etc/resolv.conf is just:

nameserver - followed by the relevant IP address

I cannot ping other domains, only my ISP. If I ping another IP number or domain I get no packets returned and it just says 'filtered' or something or that effect.

Can you post your /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf as well ? (try to set correct IP for GATEWAY in this file)

Ok my /etc/resolv.conf is

search sahara.com.sa
nameserver 212.76.68.200

but my /etc/ppp/resolv.conf is

nameserver 212.76.68.200


/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf

(I ignored the ethernet stuff)

#Default gateway IP address:
GATEWAY=""

Maybe I am missing something....??

try add to your resolv.conf :
search sahara.com.sa
nameserver 212.76.68.200
nameserver 212.76.68.201

What is the output for traceroute 216.239.37.99 ? (the 3-4 first lines)

traceroute 216.239.37.99

traceroute to 216.239.37.99 (216.239.37.99), 30 hops max, 38 byte packets

1. 212.76.61.1 (212.76.67.1) 248.047ms 239.867ms 239.943ms
2. * * *
3. * * *
4. * * *

This is the output if I try and ping a site other that my ISP's domain.

Ping hotmail.com (64.4.32.7) 56 (84) bytes of data.
From 212.76.67.1 icmp_seq=1 Packet filtered

Seems like my ISP is kind of firewalling me off from the wider web. If I use the same username and password on my windows machine I can get on to the web no problem.

Did you contact your ISP over this? It doesn't seem to me like it's something you can fix. Maybe (just a long shot), they're blocking you because you are running services they don't allow on their network (http, smtp, etc.).

Proxy?

Are you behind a proxy?
That didn't let me ping outside my ISP

Thanks for the help everyone.

Looks like I had to use a proxy, this is kind of embarassing really. It took over a week of one/off messing about to get sorted.



I figured this out when I tried pinging with my online windows machine. I got the same result......
