Check the addresses of the DNS servers in /etc/resolv.conf. Make sure they are valid, and make sure they can resolve by testing with nslookup, or ping google.com.
FreePBX hangs for upwards of 2 minutes if it can’t contact the internet. I recently had a system in a building for about a week where we had no internet. It was such a chore to have to apply then wait a full 2 minutes for every change.
Here is my problem though, there seems to be no where to make the system aware of the proxy server. This system is located at a school and the proxy is provided by the education authority so I have no control over it.
I am also unable to do updates as per this post here:
The fix mentioned didn’t work in my instance.
I can only assume that the authority has made a change ( i tried asking but no one knew…), as this system was working fine up till now.
Both nslookup and ping work ok to the outside world. (mirror1 returns 220.127.116.11)
What / Where can i edit to insert the proxy server details?
That doesnt mean you can connect to the GPG keyservers which still goes back to my original point. Ping and nslookup only tell you if it’s DNS. If you read the thread I linked to you would see there is no mention of DNS in there.
