Can’t access machine from WAN

aetolus asked 1 year ago

Hi there,

Hope this is the appropriate forum, and hopefully someone here can help me =)

I'm currently running a webserver on Ubuntu linux, behind a Thomson Speedtouch 510. I have a registered domain which is zps-technologies.com pointing to my static IP (203.173.160.41) using Zoneedit nameservers. The problem I'm having is that recently I can't access my machine whatsoever outside of my LAN.

Pinging it from here times out. Tracing it comes up with the result

203.173.160.41 is from New Zealand(NZ) in region Oceana

TraceRoute to 203.173.160.41 [203-173-160-41.static.ihug.co.nz]

I've had port forwarding set up, and also tried (although not recommended) switching off the firewall in my router completely just to see if the latest firmware changed something.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Do you have firewall settings turned on in Ubuntu?

Do you have a browser in Ubuntu? If you do have a browser, can you get to http://localhost/
