Connectino refused in Linux
Posted on 2001-07-19
I set up linux Red Hat 6.2 straight out of a box. I didn't enable any security (that I know of anyway).
The problem is that I can't connect to it from anything else. I can connect to everybody else on the lan with ftp, telnet, ssh etc but nobody can connect to me. The only inbound connections I've ever got is when somebody pings me or when I run an X-windows application on another machine.
Why does everybody else get connection refused when trying to connect to any of my ports (except X port and 21)?
More importantly how do I disable all security and let all my ports be open. The lan is firewalled.
