I have a server, client and a virtual SRX between them. I'm trying to wget a pdf file from server to client, but it gets stuck on Http request sent. Awaiting response. All traffic is meant to go out of the server/client into the SRX then to the server/client. I'm trying to figure out how to fix this and send/receive traffic.

Both the client and the server are running Ubuntu 14.04. I have changed the IP routes to facilitate the data transfer. I am able to ping but nothing more. I have noticed that I am unable to connect to the internet:

ping www.google.com

fails. I have also used

iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT

to ensure port 80 is open on both. To my knowledge this seems to be an issue because of the lack of internet connectivity. I am new to Ubuntu and IP routes/tables and suspect that my config is what is causing the issue.

IP routes on Client:

default via 4.0.0.254 dev eth4

default via 10.2.0.1 dev eth0

4.0.0.0/24 dev eth4 proto kernel scope link src 4.0.0.101

5.0.0.0/24 via 4.0.0.1 dev eth4

5.0.0.0/8 dev eth4 scope link

6.0.0.0/24 dev eth2 proto kernel scope link src 6.0.0.101

7.0.0.0/8 via 6.0.0.1 dev eth2

10.2.0.0/16 dev eth0 proto kernel scope link src 10.2.205.106

192.168.3.0/24 dev eth3 proto kernel scope link src 192.168.3.101

192.168.4.0/24 via 192.168.3.1 dev eth3

IP Routes on Server:

default via 5.0.0.254 dev eth4

default via 10.2.0.1 dev eth0

4.0.0.0/8 via 5.0.0.254 dev eth4

5.0.0.0/24 dev eth4 proto kernel scope link src 5.0.0.101

6.0.0.0/24 dev eth2 proto kernel scope link src 6.0.0.101

7.0.0.0/8 via 6.0.0.1 dev eth2

10.2.0.0/16 dev eth0 proto kernel scope link src 10.2.206.107

192.168.3.0/24 dev eth3 proto kernel scope link src 192.168.3.101

192.168.4.0/24 via 192.168.3.1 dev eth3

The default gateway is 10.2.0.1 and the name servers are 10.2.0.11 and 10.2.0.12.

I expect to be able to transfer the file across without any errors. From client to server, I'm unable to even connect. From server to client, I'm stuck at awaiting response.

I can edit and add additional details if required.

Output of ifconfig -a on client and server

  • Solved. Removed the routes from the interfaces I'm not using to make the table more readable. Removed the 5.0.0.0/8 entry. The places it says 4.0.0.1 and 5.0.0.1 are supposed to be 4.0.0.101 and 5.0.0.101 - Silly mistake. Devices able to execute wget and data passes through the SRX to Sky ATP. – Abbishek Nov 7 at 22:59
