I have a Fedora 4 box within my company that's been working fine for three months up until yesterday.  Apparently two different servers went down (I was not there when it happened), a FreeBSD box that (a) I have no control over and (b) is the primary DNS Server and this Fedora 4 box.  Upon rebooting the Fedora 4 box (they shut it off from the power button since they assumed the server was locked up), ssh, apache and webmin will work from that box (ie. I can do a "localhost" and see the web site and a "localhost:XXXXX" and see webmin) but cannot access ssh/apache/webmin on that box from any other computer.  I tried ssh'ing into that box and it fails.   We pointed the box to a different DNS Server with the same results.  What's weird is ping works.  We tried running "security levels" from within Gnome but it says "starting" and never does.  we tried "iptables -F" with same results.  We can access Internet sites from that server and are able to ping the dns server from it, so we assume the problem is only when we ssh/apache/webmin TO the box.  Any ideas?  I should also mention that I'm not at the server and since I can't ssh in, I can't get to the server so I can't provide additional information at this point...  hopefully it's something common/familiar/easy and maybe someone can just point in the right direction of correcting the problem?
