403 , security measure?

Post by Dorel » Sun Sep 13, 2015 1:46 pm

Hello guys , first of all, thanks Gordon for linuxzoo, is really really great and the tutorials are very usefull.

I've just set up my linux centos 7 vm and I have a simple questions.

I've just tried to use wget / yum , even ping and in the first 2 cases I recieve 403 forbidden from remote hosts and when I try to ping by example Google, I get the ip address, but I can't get any data in response.

So I can't actually interact with external web pages , servers etc , is this a security measure to avoid script kiddies etc?

I've found a topic with a guy which presented the same problem and the fix was to upload new software from his own computer , is this only way?

Thank you very much,

Best Regards,
