Hello,

For some reason I can ping a host, let's call it "somehost.com", from my DSL connection and from some other servers, but I cannot ping it from my cPanel box. I get "Connection timed out".

This is what my "exim_mainlog" shows when trying to send an email to "[email protected]" (host and IP address have been replaced):


2004-02-12 00:13:13 1Ar7FB-0007Cw-F4 somehost.com [xx.xx.xxx.xx]: Connection timed out
2004-02-12 00:13:13 1Ar7FB-0007Cw-F4 == [email protected] R=lookuphost T=remote_smtp defer (110): Connection timed out
2004-02-12 00:13:13 1Ar7FB-0007Cw-F4 ** [email protected]: retry timeout exceeded

Does anyone have a similar problem? I did not find anything related on these forums.

Thank you,

Adrian.

Fernando,

Just called at the hosting company I was not able to ping one of their servers, and they unblocked my IP address.

They have a curious way to gain market, they block other hosting companies IP addresses :)

Saludos,

Adrian
