Access to Kiwi from remote addresses lost after power outage
At KPH I run 7 Kiwis http:kphsdr.com:8072...8078 (kiwi 72...78) and earlier this week they were all abruptly powered down when the neighborhood AC power lines went down and the backup battery supply ran out of power. All the Kiwis are running v1.464 and behind a firewall which is configured for port forwarding.
When power was restored all of the Kiwis came back up and can be accessed from the LAN, but only 2 of them Kiwi72, Kiwi77 would respond to remote listeners at public IP addresses. After installing tcpdump on Kiwi73 and Kiwi74 I could see the packets forwarded by the firewall arriving from my remote public IP address, but tcpdump shows no response packets. After the 'reboot the "Beagle Reboot" button had no effect on Kiwi74, I rebooted it from the debian command line after which Kiwi74 did respond to remote users.
However rebooting Kiwi73 did not restore remote connectivity. I have disabled all IP blacklists (confirmed with 'iptables -L) and removed all time limits and then rebooted once again, and Kiwi73 still doesn't respond to public IP addresses. I can 'ping google.com' from Kiwi73's command line, so it has DNS access and a working default route.
As a final experiment I upgraded Kiwi75 to v1.470 and it too continued to not respond to public IP address users.
So I can see no networking problems at the debian level and all the evidence suggests that 'kiwid' is blacklisting public IP addresses.
I can open a public IP address:port for remote access to these failing Kiwis if that would help debug the problem.
I see this was posted to the Installation section, but I don't see how to move it to another forum group
