I have an application that connects to terminals on various ports but one of them does not appear to be be being presented:

TCP    GBCN-IX18V:directplay8  LISTENING   <<<<<<<

I've changed the FQDN to but the rest of the above is what i get from running netstat -a

The application I'm using should be advertising a development environment on port 6073 but I cannot connect at all.  I'm assuming at the moment that that its the appliaction thats not offering the port but could it be simply the server itself thats blocking or refusing to offer the port for connections?  Pretty sure its the appliaction that should offer the connection port yeah?

This is quiet urgent so appreciate all responses!

Thanks and good luck
