Opening Port 1129 on Godaddy Dedicated Linux server
Posted on 2008-11-18
I am working on a php based application which required Linkpoint payment gateway integration. The application is hosted on a dedicated Linux server hosting at Godaddy.com. To complete the intergation I need port 1129 to be activated. I have found 2 methods to do this. 1. By enabling IPtables and adding the port and accept all inbound request to the destination port 1129.
2. Using the Firewall module installed on Plesk (server management software).
At first I tried the first option of IPtables and found that there is something else which is managing the firewalls. So figured it out to be Plesk based module which is used to manage the firewall. So I added a custom rule for port 1129 on TCP and applied the changes. I check out if the IPTable is updated with the latest information and it was updated. I tried to use few Port scanner to check if the port has been enables. To my surprise this was not open yet. I contact the Godaddy.com support guy which was useless as they can't provide or suggest any solution other than what I did.
I would really appriciate if someone who can help me find a solution for this problem.
