I am installing a Fedora Core 6 server which needs to directly connect to the internet. I have also disabled the firewall (due to the purpose of the server).
Here is the deal. I am unable to connect to the internet (even outgoing) so I believe that I have a routing issue or something. I have a surfboard cable modem that is provisioned with 5 static IPs and currently run several servers behind routers (each with a static IP). This Fedora box is the first one directly connected.
My provisioned IPs are xx.yy.116.114 - xx.yy.116.118, and the gateway for these are xx.yy.116.113. I want to use xx.yy.116.115 for the Fedora box.
BTW, I am able to connect to the Fedora server (using xx.yy.116.115) as long as I am on another box on the network (e.g. xx.yy.116.118), but not from anywhere else.
There is only one network card (eth0) on the Fedora server:
Here is my relevant files:
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
::1 localhost6.localdomain localhost6
# nVidia Corporation MCP51 Ethernet Controller
; generated by /sbin/dhclient-script

0.0.0.0 xx.yy.116.113 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0
The route -n output is what I am confused about. Why is xx.yy.116.112 showing up as a destination? I have no idea what this IP address is. Should the box itself xx.yy.116.115 show up as a destination?
Any help is much appreciated.
