I just lost power to my home "server" and when it came back up I couldn't
connect via SSH or HTTP. I could ping, so I knew that it was back up.
Sooo, I drug the monitor up from the basement and plugged it in.
Everything looked fine. Restarted services, fsck, yada, yada. Still no
Finally I look at what daemons are running, and damned if ipchains and
iptables weren't running. I don't run them normally, and don't have them
configured for my environment (i.e. to let SSH and HTTP through). (Please
send chiding emails to /dev/null) WTF? I have had other power failures
and every thing has come up roses in the past.
Can anyone offer a rational explanation?
