I've bought an dedicated server some days ago, and now its time to setup some more IP failovers to handle my services, unfortunately, it seems like I can not access certain ports anymore if I'm using the IP failover to connect.
I setup the IP Failover in the following way:
/etc/rc.conf I've added this line:
ifconfig_em0_alias0="inet ip.failover netmask 255.255.255.255 broadcast ip.failover"
Lets say the
111.222.333.444, so when I want to connect to the game server on my local machine (port number
7000) using the above IP failover it is saying that the port
7000 is not reachable on the
111.222.333.444 (the server is binding the IP failover), the strange thing is that, my second server (port number
6000 and normal, original IP there) is working correctly and I can connect to it on my local machine.
Also, I can connect to the
111.222.333.444 failover from my local machine on the SSH port, but others (game ports) seems to be unreachable.
What is wrong? Is that the firewall blocking or what?
My English is not good, so if I'm missing any informations or so, please ask in comments.
