I can't seem to get a simple Oracle SQL*Net connecting through my ipchains based firewall. I must be missing something, but I can't figure out what.
All I want to do is let an Oracle database connection from outside my network through to a 9i database within my network(behind the firewall). I have tried to be as least restrictive as I possibly can about these two rules. Here are the two rules I have been trying to get right:
ipchains -A input -s 0/0 -d 0/0 1521 -b -p tcp -j ACCEPT
ipchains -A output -s 0/0 1521 -d 0/0 -b -p tcp -j ACCEPT
I have tried putting these rules at the top of my rule set, so I don't think its being blocked by another rule. Thanks for the help.
