Check all your IP addresses, netmasks and routers to make sure everyone has a path to everyone else.

Use traceroute to the host and post results if you do not understand them.

Hi altona,

looks like a problem with the firewall of the server. Stop the firewall and try it again. If that works, change the settings in the iptables.
