Dear All, I have a centos 5.5 machine. I have forwarded both port 22 and 9000 on my router. So then I can connect on 22 and remotely login into the machine. The problem when I start my java listener program which is listening on 9000 it cant not establish any connection. I have even add this into the iptables too -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 9000 -j ACCEPT. I have disabled the SELINUX too. What else must I do to make it work any suggestion please? Thank you.
