I can't figure this crap out. I was reading about the Iptable thing but it confused the [censored] outta me. Is there an easy way to open up a port or two in redhat (8.0)? Or a link that explains how to.

thanks

i tried this rule

iptables -A INPUT --destination-port xxxx -i ppp0 -j accept

the xxxx is the port number but I get "unknown arg '--destination-port'

I haven't used iptables in a while, but I believe you have to speicfy a protocol option. So it would look something like this:

iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --destination-port telnet -i ppp0 -j ACCEPT

You might want to check this link out, it doesn't really go in depth but it clarifies a lot of things, at least for me it does.

EDIT: This won't actually "open" a port, but rather allow connections to the port you specify. You first have to enable the service you want people to connect to.

hmmm I'll give that a try. Basically i need to open up port 2300 and some other one (both are udp) so i can play a damn game online with a friend. Will allowing connection to the port fix this? or does it have to be "open"

There's load of info, lots of premade firewall scripts and what not. They'll probably help you better than I can...hehe laugh
