Oopsie: all ports filtered?

Hi everyone, I hope this isn't as dumb of a question as it might be...

I'm trying my hand at the Oopsie machine, and after failing even the most basic curl, I decided to look at the walkthrough.
To my surprise, port 80 is meant to be open.

So I did what the walkthrough said and used nmap to scan for open ports, and this is what it returned to me:

$sudo nmap -sS -Pn 10.10.10.28
Starting Nmap 7.80 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2021-02-18 13:42 UTC
Nmap scan report for 10.10.10.28
Host is up (3.0s latency).
All 1000 scanned ports on 10.10.10.28 are filtered

Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 78.90 seconds

But even with the knowledge that port 80 should be open, I can't connect to it at all. Using curl returns the error curl: (7) Failed to connect to 10.10.10.28 port 80: No route to host, and trying to connect through Firefox gives me the generic "unable to connect" message.

I'm starting to think there's something wrong with the machine, because a simple ping 10.10.10.28 command returned this: From 10.10.14.1 icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable.

  • Okay it was dumb.

    Turns out I was connected via the wrong VPN file.
    I had not actually read the instructions and just took the first download for a .ovpn file I saw.

    After downloading and connecting the starting_point_<username>.ovpn file it works just fine.

  • i am pretty sure i have the right .ovpn file
    but i still get this
    [email protected]:~# ping -c 1 10.10.10.226
    PING 10.10.10.226 (10.10.10.226) 56(84) bytes of data.
    From 10.10.14.1 icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable

    --- 10.10.10.226 ping statistics ---
    1 packets transmitted, 0 received, +1 errors, 100% packet loss, time 0ms

    Prolly too stupid for hacking. what am i doing wrong? thanks

    Well, as you can see, a lot of people ask similar questions - so some of those solutions might help you.

    First - are you a VIP or VIP+ user? If so, you need to activate the server and have it spawned into your account.

    Secondly, try using traceroute / tracert - all ping does is say if the packets can get to something that will reply. At least with traceroute you can see where the failure takes place

    Happy to help people but PLEASE explain your problem in as much detail as possible! If you say vague things like "It's not working", I cant help. This isn't Twitter so my DMs are always open.
