    Ping goes to a different IP address? Why? (RESOLVED because I can't type properly)

    So I'm trying to setup my nginx server without luck. I'm always getting a timeout error. From the commandline, I can curl localhost and I get the correct nginx welcome page. Same thing if I curl my IP address. When I curl my domain name, I get this:

    curl: (7) Failed to connect to chat.securemeetup.net port 80: No route to host

    Trying to just ping either my domain name or my IP address from the server itself, I get something strange:

    [email protected]:/etc# ping 104.224.xxx.xxx
    PING 104.224.xxx.xxx (104.224.xxx.xxx) 56(84) bytes of data.
    From 72.37.144.xx icmp_seq=1 Time to live exceeded
    From 72.37.144.xx icmp_seq=2 Time to live exceeded
    ^C
    

    Why would this happen? Why would it all of a sudden route to a totally different IP address on a different continent?

    • A gateway/routing device further upstream is reporting the failure before it gets to your IP.

      Anything I can do about it? Or is this someone else's problem that will eventually clear up?

      What continent did you expect? Both 104.224.73.189 and 72.37.144.90 appear to be in the US. Also it is useless to hide your IPs, but show your domain chat.securemeetup.net, which resolves to the full IP.

      Check your "104...." IP for typos, are you using the correct one. If yes, then it's not properly routed to the Internet currently, try contacting your provider.

      Check with your provider about the routing.

      Did you double-check the IP? Such trace shows you are using a different IP entirely, than what your server has. Post the output of ip addr and ip route.

      edit: yep, you have a typo: 224 => 244.

      Sigh...yep...stupid typo. I've been an idiot twice today...and the day is still young. :-(

      Thanks all! Problem resolved.
