I'm an Oracle certified Database Administrator

I've worked extensively with both Oracle and Postgres, in various roles from DBA to developer. I have a basic working experience with SQL Server and MySQL.

I'm happy to consider offers of part-time or short-term work either in the London/M4 area or working remotely.

Try killing the GUI completely and any automatic network management software, the see what happens on the commend line when you plug in. Perhaps post ifconfig before and after on gist?

are the iptables rejects getting logged (eg to /var/log/messages)? You might need kern.* /var/log/messages in /etc/rsyslog.conf as well as -j LOG --log-prefix "iptables denied: " --log-level 7 or something like that.
