if I SSH into my server, and I try to ping another server, I never see the responses. This seems to happen only on urls. I've been able to ping a couple ip addresses.
I first noticed this problem when my PHP cURL requests were failing; I was seeing this error: "name lookup timed out".
Also, I'm not sure if this is unusual, but I couldn't locate nslookup or dig on my server. (doing which nslookup and which dig didn't provide any results)
This problem seemed to coincide with a slice migration (Slicehost was migrating my slice).
Interestingly, I'm able to successfully ping my server from any other computer, and navigate to the webpages it hosts.
My server is: Debian 5.0 (lenny), and I'm running Apache if it makes any difference. I'm a bit of a SysAdmin noob, so please let me know if there's any more info that would be helpful. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you!
