    So I was having an issue with CSF not loading up out of the blew. All services were working fine. I went ahead and restarted the server and now I am receiving the following:

    Bringing up eth0:1 SIOCGIFADDR: Cannot assign requested address
    SIOCSIFFLAGS: Cannot assign requested address

    routing 173.xx.xx.xx SIOCADDRT: No such device

    any ideas why this would be starting all of a sudden? Any ideas on how to fix it?


    Thank you!

    Looks like the default firewall went on for no apparent reason. Once I ran

    /etc/init.d/iptables stop

    it came back up as normal again. Not sure why that occurred in the first place.

    Check /etc/sysconfig/iptables for default firewall rules, and clear them if you don't want them. These will be reloaded on boot regardless if you manually flush them with iptables -F.
