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.
