Question

Gateway host unreachable from Ubuntu box

I’m running Ubuntu 14.04. For some reason I can no longer connect to the internet from my VPS and I can only access it from the VNC console :-(

cat /etc/network/interfaces :

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
  address 178.62.xxx.xxx
  netmask 255.255.192.0
  gateway 178.62.192.1
  dns-nameservers 8.8.8.8 8.8.4.4

route -n:

0.0.0.0   178.62.192.1     0.0.0.0     UG   0   0   0  eth0

ping -c 3 178.62.192.1:

From 178.62.xxx.xxx icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable

I have no clue where to look. I was messing around with the firewall earlier, but those should be inactive now. Both ‘ufw status’ and ‘iptables -L’ indicate this…
