Let me preface with this that I am a linux and network noob, so talk slowly and use big words.
We have a Red Hat machine running GNOME 2.16. We're trying to stand up a webapp there. From the windows development environment we are able to ping RH, but cannot telnet to the web container
Connecting To our.ip.address.## ...Could not open connection to the host, on port 80##: Connect failed
Things I've checked:
iptables is not running
A browser on the RH box can see the webapp at 127.0.0.1:80##
The webapp defaults to include ip 0.0.0.0 which should make it public (right?)
The masks are the same on both boxes
The RH server also can ping a subversion server, but can't make checkouts
All I can think is that there is some firewall between the windows and RH box, but I don't know how to check that. I wanted to be sure I'd tried everything I can before I knock on IT's door.
Are there any other settings or linux commands I should be checking?
What is your diagnosis?
