DNS Request timed out, never reaching webfront.
Posted on 2008-10-01
I'm in a sticky situation and hope you guys can help me out. This is what it looks like:
At my company we are running a webfront with Apache 2. The purpose of this is to redirect the user to a CGI server for exectuion of the dynamic webpages. My problem is that there is no response from the webfront! A ping to the DNS resolves the ip-address but gives no other response.
I can verify this because the Apache access.log in the /srv/log/httpd/ directory shows nothing, which in my book tells me that no traffic is let through.
I can also see that the conf files for the site have not been altered for over a year and everything worked fine last friday. =(
Of course I tried to access it from different domains, all with the same result: time out.
This is my first job and I would really like to fix this problem so I can get some respect around here. =)
I know some of you will ask if there are some firewall settings screwing everything up. But since I am a regular mortal developer I have to access to check these.
So any kind of tips would really be appreciated!
And please ask me if anything is unclear and I will do my best to answer.
Best regards Jide
