Fedora 25 64 bit workstation - Some sites can be accessed, some cannot

asked 2017-03-12 13:59:01 +0000

If you run the page https://slack.com/help/test in your browser only the Web Socket connections fail. The issue occurs even when running Fedora 25 from live usb stick. I'm using DSL wired connection - I've tried everything (disabling firewalld, changing all values in the network settings, currently IPV6 is ignored) but couldn't find explanation as to why sometimes (even quite often) the Web Socket connections fail - https://slack.com/help/test Never had similar issue before with prev Fedora or Windows. Any help?

I see web socket success, it might be your ISP blocking things, try using vpn or proxy

It's not the ISP, it works fine with the same wired connection under windows. I connect to the ISP via DSL using username and password so not really sure how i could try vpn or proxy. It must be a config thing with the DSL but what. I used to use Fedora 18 with the same wired connection and never had this issue. Can you try direct wired connection, see if you still see web socket success?

It seems as of Fedora 24 there is a new IPV6 for DSL connection hence internet packets are transferred in a different way (may be more Fedora proficient guy can confirm on this?) not compatible with my ISP. Downgrading to Fedora 23.

If your using a router I would log into the router and make sure it doesn't have a problem. If your running two systems a windows and linux I would purchase a router and install it as this way your always on the internet. I had a problem and at the top right of my screen I see three little blocks that show I'm connected. Ileft click and look at wired settings. I had to change back to where it originally after my firewalld locked up.

No router, wired connection straight into the laptop which is on Fedora 25 64 bit. I only tested the wired connection on Windows 7 (and it works fine) and it was working fine on Fedora 18 which I used. Stopping firewalld makes no difference. The wired connection is DSL with username and password to connect to the ISP. IPV4 is automatic, IPV6 is ignored. "... I see three little blocks that show I'm connected. Ileft click and look at wired settings. I had to change back to where it originally after my firewalld locked up" - can you provide screenshot for these as to what had to be changed?
