Run ifconfig and make sure that it has the right ip addr:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:B0:D0:20:06:FC
inet addr:184.108.40.206 Bcast:220.127.116.11 Mask:255.255.255.0
which is the 18.104.22.168 above. Check your address against your host file
or nslookup on your machine name.
Then see if you can ping it from a server.
If you can ping it, then everything else should work. If not, then the error
message should provide useful information.
Also, see if you can get out from it, like pinging other machines, and
telnetting to them.
