My VPS wasn't cutting it so I decided to go with my own server -- and 1and1 seemed to be the best bang for the buck around.
I reimaged with the Fedora core 6 minimal install and SSH'd in to begin setting the thing up only to find I couldn't use yum... or wget or even ping out (by hostname or ip).
I can ping localhost/127 and the server by IP/hostname from the machine.
My linux networking skills aren't what they should be... does anyone have any ideas for what the deal is?
The only reason I post this here is because the 24/7 support that they market on their website apparently does't start until monday morning at 9am for servers. At least that was the ingrish response I received from email support. Posted below for your reading enjoyment...
Kindly contact our server department at this no. 1-877-206-4255 or you may composed an email and sent it to firstname.lastname@example.org. And please be
informed that they are only available during regular working hour Monday
