I have two servers, 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11, that were connected across a LAN. They are the components of a DMZ where 18.104.22.168 is the wen server and 22.214.171.124 the application server. 126.96.36.199 is running Ubuntu 11.04 while 188.8.131.52 is running Ubuntu 11.10. I had to restart 184.108.40.206 because Unity froze up. (I have since replaced it with Gnome.) Ever since I started it up again, I cannot get connectivity with 220.127.116.11. When I try
PING 18.104.22.168 (22.214.171.124) 56(84) bytes of data.
That is, it just hangs. I get the same result if I try
I had been saving my iptables in iptables.save but now I see that that fie is of zero size for some reason although I had a lot of rules in the IPtable. I tried to fix the problem with
sudo iptables -A OUTPUT -s 126.96.36.199 -j ACCEPT sudo iptables -A OUTPUT -d 188.8.131.52 -j ACCEPT sudo iptables -A INPUT -s 184.108.40.206 -j ACCEPT sudo iptables -A INPUT -d 220.127.116.11 -j ACCEPT
but it has no effect. How do I fix it?
