Need someone to look at my server
I have a server at theplanet.com.
I had geeks4help.com to set up a firewall on the server.
Some of my clients have problems access their sites.
Sometimes the sites are down but I (and theplanet support) are able to access the sites.
I have asked the customers to make a traceroute and the traffic pass fine through the network.
When I ask theplanet support they say that there is no error.
I have asked geeks4help.com to check the firewall and they say that everything is ok.
I needsomone to look at my server and find a correct the error so that my customers can acces their sites again.
Please PM me if you can help me out.
I don't do server management, but I do recommend Sheps (
www.platinum-hosting.com). Based on personal experience, both my client and I are extremely pleased with his work.

What kind of error are they getting?
I can do server management.
All I really want to do is server management, design, implementation, etc.
So if you got a server job, I'll do it!
Try to change the firewall to some popular firewall like apf.. it may work
Hi, do you know what firewall is being used? shouldn't be too hard to fix, sounds like someones messed up when adding rules.
do this: iptables -F
and tell us if your clients still have any problems?
I will be more than happy to help you out for no cost on this matter, send me PM.
flushing the rules isn't the best option under the circumstances, if rules were added, it was for a reason, iptables -L (assuming its linux and not *BSD) would list all rules, and perhaps uncover a broad mask that's affecting legitimate traffic.
/etc/apf look at the banned list check if any of the IP's are listed?
Your management may have setup a system to block people that enter incorrect passwords etc, it may not be so user friendly and ban their IP's.
theplanet is having issues.
Mouse_103 Im pretty sure their not having any problems. If you can provide the error your getting please tell us.
now I want my friend to switch from theplanet to better hosting.
The problem have been solved.
Thank you all for your posts.
