I've been leasing several /24 subnets from an external source and then I had my hosting company route them to my server.

I've added the IPs using a network-script file ifcfg-eth0-range1 with contents

IPADDR_START=xxx.xxx.xxx.2
IPADDR_END=xxx.xxx.xxx.254
CLONENUM_START=255

For several months this has been working flawlessly but suddenly I only get timeouts on one /24 subnet, all others are still working fine.

How can I find out where issue is? How can I check if it's my server, the hosting company or the 3rd party that leased the IPs to me?

Traceroute gives normally:

 10   140 ms   141 ms   145 ms  hosting.com [yyy.yyy.yyy]
 11   140 ms   139 ms   139 ms  xxx.xxx.xxx.2

Trace complete.

With the non working subnet:

 10   268 ms   279 ms   303 ms  hosting.com [yyy.yyy.yyy]

  • Does a traceroute to the affected subnet appear as you'd expect? – EEAA Dec 7 '15 at 11:15
  • No, at the last step, after the hosting server, it times out – maddo7 Dec 7 '15 at 11:32
  • Is this a shared VLAN? You should use arpwatch to check if some other customer is using your IPs. I have seen things like this happening very oftenn. Use arping to check if the mac-address of the IP maybe changes when your subnet is not available. – Christian Dec 7 '15 at 11:59
  • I just checked with the hosting company and everything seems fine, the next hop would be my server but there it times out. Any Idea how I could check what's wrong with the server? – maddo7 Dec 10 '15 at 14:15
