I have a fresh openSUSE server. I can ping it from the LAN and the server can ping the client. But the server is unable to ping any website from the internet?

I already entered the correct gateway and dns-nameserver to the file /etc/resolv.conf and restart the network by executing rcnetwork restart. I even entered 8.8.8.8 (google) as nameserver.

But I can't ping www.google.de or any other site.

What should I check?

Traceroute

traceroute to 8.8.8.8 (8.8.8.8), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets

  • Can you ping 8.8.8.8 ? – Mark Plotnick Oct 18 '18 at 11:41

    Run traceroute -n 8.8.8.8 and note the point at which the responses stop appearing. Is that point on one of your networks or your ISP? – Mark Plotnick Oct 18 '18 at 11:43
  • @MarkPlotnick, no – Black Oct 18 '18 at 11:43
  • @MarkPlotnick, good hint. I added the traceroute. It looks like it stops at the gateway? Maybe it is not allowed in the firewall of the gateway? – Black Oct 18 '18 at 11:45
  • Add "netstat -rn" output to your question. – Gerard H. Pille Oct 18 '18 at 11:48

There have been many reports in the openSUSE forums about problems similar or exactly like this. In most cases running a sudo /sbin/netconfig -f update helped in many cases.
