I had a power outage yesterday, and my previous setup with 12.04 LTS was working smoothly.

Now, my webserver isn't accessible to the outside world, and nor is my MOO server.

I have a static IP,and use port forwarding on my router to direct traffic to my server. Here's my testing: can't ping google from server can't access web from server can ping server (192.168.xx.xx) from my other work station can ping my IP (124.254.xx.xx) from my other work station

I'm using UFW - ports 23, 7777 and 80 are open. Firewall is active. Port forwarding is working to the correct IP address.

I tested to see if the ports were visible - canyouseeme.org shows 80 and 7777 closed.

I'm a noob, so I may have left something off the fresh install I did a few weeks ago. But it had all been working well. The install worked out of the box - no special fixes.

I've trawled the web and this forum to find a fix. I commented out #dns=dnsmasq in networkmanager.conf - to no avail.

I can recall in a previous install, having to add info to a config file regarding my IP address - at tis stage I'm not worried about domain names. The best I've come up with is to add dns-nameservers to /etc/network/interface*.

I really need to have the MOO up and running (it is running, but not accessible). You could say I'm desperate. Look forward to any advice you may be able to provide.

I recommend you to change in networkmanager.conf from #dns=dnsmasq to dns=resolv.conf. Then in /etc/resolf.conf put namserver and nameserver –  2707974 Apr 29 '14 at 12:06
