Unhappy Opening TPC ports

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this post, but I'd be grateful if somebody could please help me. I'm trying to open ports 999, 1982 and 1983 but am not having much luck. I used
iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp --sport 999 -m state --state NEW,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp --sport 1982 -m state --state NEW,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp --sport 1983 -m state --state NEW,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
to open the ports but haven't been successful. I was told to make sure that your server TCP ports: 999, 1982, 1983 are fully open inbound and outbound and that destination IP address for those ports is 72.232.181.106.
I've been trying for ages to get these ports open, but haven't had any luck.
This is the first time I've ever used a dedicated server and I am very new to all of this so I in advance for lack of knowledge

Thanks

If it helps after I tried to open the ports I ran iptables -L and this is the result:

What firewall software are you using (e.g. shorewall, Bastille, etc.)? I thin you can enable these ports somewhere in the configuration of your firewall software.

I'm not sure what Firewall I'm using - how do I find out?
I used vi /etc/sysconfig/iptables to check which ports are open. The output I
got was:
Code:

What are the outputs of
Code:
ps aux
and
Code:
ls -l /etc/init.d/
?

Sorry I don't know and don't quite understand your question.

Please run the command
Code:
ps aux
and post the output of that command here. Do the same for the other command.
