    Question apache router issue?


    I have a strange issue with apache2 ( on ubuntu ), hoping that someone here may be able to shed some light on.

    here's the situation;

    I've got an apache server on my network: ( no firewall )

    I need to connect to make a SOAP call to a server thats on an extension of our network:

    from the console on the apache server I can ping, I can also open up a LYNX ( txt based browser ) to and it connects without an issue, however when I try to connect from apache/php I get "failed to open stream".

    how if I take my web server, put it on the exact same ( physical ) as "" it works no problem.

    so all I can think of is that apache has some kind of routing issue?

    any ideas at all would be a big help at this point!

    Hello Ken,

    What PHP function are you using to make the connection?

    Some functions are sanitized by various php.ini settings - several directives can block remote connectivity for safety reasons, e.g: allow-url-fopen

    Another test is to trying opening a telnet session from to on the port the SOAP server is running. While the IP is accessible, the port may not be.
