I'm looking to open up a port 5566 on my server. I've added 5566 to SYSTEM > FIREWALL.
My router doesn't block any ports.
This site http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/
shows Port 5566 is closed on 126.96.36.199.
PAROLE tcp -- anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:5566
ACCEPT udp -- anywhere anywhere udp dpt:domain
ACCEPT udp -- anywhere anywhere udp dpt:mysql
ACCEPT udp -- anywhere anywhere udp dpt:5566
DROP icmp -- anywhere anywhere
DROP all -- anywhere anywhere
When I attempted to telnet from my workstation to ip address 188.8.131.52:5566 it failed and was trying to open port 23.
I need to make sure that port 5566, which is what the API uses to connect the web pages to the database is allowed through the firewall.
Does anyone know how I can troubleshoot this?
