I might have done something stupid on my person debian server - I altered the fstab file. I changed udev to dev to try to fix a mounting issue in /dev/sda1 but after I restarted the server, I cannot access it with ping, ssh, smb, or http. Is the issue related to my uneducated fstab change or should I be looking someplace else?

  [/Volumes]$ ping 192.168.0.190

Looks like the machine wasn't even started, I guess it failed some where in the initramfs, i.e can't mount root drive.

So any network connection would just fail here, you should take a look physically, I don't think you can solve this remotely.

Hey warl0ck, thanks for the reply. It looks like it's running but I have no monitor to verify or anything. I'm rocking one if these: Dreamplug –  slowBear Feb 17 '13 at 2:41
    
@slowBear if the storage is removable, you can mount it on another machine and revert your fstab changes. –  jordanm Feb 17 '13 at 3:29
    
@jordanm thanks for the tip - I dont think the storage is removable though :/ –  slowBear Feb 17 '13 at 4:05
    
@slowBear then boot with external media –  warl0ck Feb 17 '13 at 4:07
