Just installed Redhat 7.3 and everything seemed to work ok. I noticed while I was setting it up I couldn't get to any ftp sites outside of my LAN. I setup a ftp on the LAN and the install worked. However if I try to ping the box from outside the LAN it fails. Any help is appriciated.
Thanks

Failing to reach an IP outside of the local LAN points to a problem with the default gateway setting on the RedHat box or a problem with the gateway router.
