Description of problem:
I can use lynx, wget, konqueror, firefox, etc with the same results. FC3 will not allow access to this site. Using ethereal, I can see syn packets being sent, I can see dns resolutions taking place, but I never see any awk packets from the site or anything else from the site for that matter. It's as if there's some rogue code in the networking components that keep this site (and possibly others) from being accessed.
this problem is based in the FC3 server/router because no computers connected to the internal network (windows or otherwise) can access the site either.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Load any web browser in Fedora Core 3
2.Have it attempt to connect to http://www.anime-empire.net
3.Timeout will occure or an error stating "document contains no data"
Expected Results: Should have loaded a flash enabled site.
This problem has existed since I installed FC3 and updated it to all current releases of installed components as of Jan. 1 2005. I am currently running all current updates as they come out, hoping that the problem will eventually be resolved in an update.
The only workaround is to use vBrowser plugin for Firefox (or other free proxy) and get another server to download the data and then send it from another route/ip
I supsect this is because some where upstream of you towards a transparent proxy
there is a broken router. First up does visiting
Next does turning tcp scaling off by doing (as root):
echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_default_win_scale
Then visting http sites help?
I can access seemingly ALL other sites without fail. even other stealth sites.
just not this one. MSN, google, yahoo, all major sites... even other anime
sites... just not the one
as for the echo statement...
[root@serving ~]# echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_default_win_scale
-bash: /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_default_win_scale: No such file or directory
it won't let that be created. even by root.
My mistake. That should have been /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_window_scaling
It's had no affect... do I need to reboot the server or just restart network
services for it to have an affect?
I think the effect would have been immediately applied to new connections. At
worst you would have to just restart the network interfaces.
I guess you can try doing traceroute/tracepath and see if your packets are
getting just as far (alas they do not appear to get all the way for me but
perhaps your are going missing even earlier).
restarted network and no difference still
my traceroutes disappear after the server's ISP I think... hop 9 at
dist-vlan31.dsr3-2.dllstx3.theplanet.com [126.96.36.199]is the last hop I can hit
I have discovered that anime-empire's webserver is running in stealth mode (not
allowing ping/traceroute) which makes no difference since my best friend's
server is running in stealth mode as well and I have no problem accessing his site.
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
