I am working from an openSuse 11.1 box, from an essentially clean install. I'm trying to do an SVN export onto the box over http (via apache). Our SVN server is running on port 8080 on the network, and is up and working fine (can reach it from my windows box, and from an Ubuntu VM on my windows box).
The Suse box can ping the SVN server just fine, and can wget off of port 80. But it cannot reach it on SVN over HTTP on port 8080. And a basic wget against a a web page running on 8080 on the same server fails as well.
I assume there is some sort of network or firewall configuration I am missing, but I'm not familiar enough with these things on *nix to know where to start. Any ideas?
EDIT: I checked from yast2, the firewall isn't even turned on...
UPDATE: Running tcpdump while I try wget a website on port 8080, I get the following:
13:51:55.486329 IP mysusebox.56489 > mysvnserver.http-alt: S 1456704340:1456704340(0) win 5840 <mss 1460,sackOK,timestamp 42587871 0,nop,wscale 6>
And that is the only item in the list after a second or to of trying the wget. The wget eventually fails with a "connection timed out"
UPDATE: Resolved. Turns out there was a hardware firewall between the two. Thanks though, learned something new with tcpdump!
