comment Install webserver on ubuntu desktop-problem when access external address
Are you trying the 213* address from within your local network? It look like you are reaching your router. You need to look in to setting up Network Address Translation (NAT) on your router.

Have you tried pinging something else. The 8.8.8.8 DNS server should always respond.

comment How to solve “tmp could not be saved, because the disk, folder, or file is write-protected.”
Have you rebooted since these problems started? It sounds like your filesystem did not get mounted properly on boot. It also might be a failing harddrive.

comment Ubuntu crawls in virtualbox
@Mitch iffy's answer was a comment that provided a helpful hint to solving your problem. It cannot be accepted as an answer. A better answer would be for you to detail the steps taken. Here is good Meta question about this: meta.askubuntu.com/questions/268/…. iffy can choose to expand his comment into a full answer also.

comment Running {command vs through bash script} + redirect output

comment Running {command vs through bash script} + redirect output
I have a bad theory: when the command is run in a file there are two stdouts (and stderrs), One from the command in the the script and one from the command the runs the script. Therefore the redirect is ambiguous as to which stdout you are referring. I have no information to back that theory.

You mention grep and Perl, but I think awk will also be helpful as it has nice features for addressing columns.
