At my wits end, dont know what i've done wrong.
I have recently moved house and had a number of things wrong with my ubuntu server.
- I have new network hardware (ubiquiti gateway and switch)
- My initial issue was my laptop wouldnt allow me to connect to server using ssh, complained about the key and known_hosts. I removed that file but now when i get asked for my password on the server it just wont accept it and it's definitely right
- None of my daemon services running on the server can be connected to from my browser on my laptop (sickrage, plex, ubiquiti controller software, deluge web) I just get a connection refused error
- Something else I noticed when i login directly onto the ubuntu server, I get an error "failed to connect to http://changelogs.ubuntu... check your internet connection or proxy settings"
I have done two things in the last few days --I installed OpenVPN and followed these instructions to create split vpn tunneling for deluge https://www.htpcguides.com/force-torrent-traffic-vpn-split-tunnel-debian-8-ubuntu-16-04/ ***I tried undoing most of this but it doesnt seem to have helped
--I moved and have new network gear and new internet connection
*** ok interesting new bit of information, if i reboot my server, the first connection i make to the server whether it's to a web base daemon like sickrage, ubiquiti controller, plex media server, the service loads on my macs browser, but if i hit refresh in the browser, it fails to connect and never connects again unless i reboot server
If i try SSH from mac to server it sometimes works but soon after i get a "packet_write_wait: Connection to 192.168.0.6: Broken pipe" and then can never connect again until i reboot the server...
it's almost like a service crashes that effects network services?
