Firewall blocking internet access


New Member

Installed the VE on 1 of my AMD 7 servers and the firewall blocked my browser (Firefox) email and all. For testing used the server console and disable the firewall at the data center and node level, tested and still no internet.

Any suggestions be greatly appreciated.

I suspect that the network configuration, not the firewall is to blame in your case. Please share the output of cat /etc/network/interfaces and explain in more details what you are testing and what is not working.

Please also read carefully trough the docs, as several basic network configurations and examples are listed there. See
