Not with the info that you have provided.

You are asking a question that requires investigation. Your text does not indicate that you have done any of this investigation yet. If you want some help you will need to provide some of the tests and results that you have already done. You should include such things as hardware config (how many servers), OS type (Linux or the other one), firewall, router, DHCP, etc...

I need more information around the statement "Its only when I put the public IP that the system starts hanging".

What do you mean by "put the public IP"?

Additionally, explain the statement "All ip address are OK" a little more. I don't want to assume what you mean.

Some ISPs block certain ports.

by daveo2000 In reply to Problem is solved

Can you reach a web server on your machine from outside? If not, then maybe your ISP blocks some "well known ports" to help clients avoid attacks.

If they do then you have two choices:
1) ask the ISP if they can unblock those ports for your IP;
2) use other ports and port-forward from your firewall to the proper port on your server.

See where you get on these questions and report back your findings.
