I want to know how to open port 1521 et 1158 (for oracle ...) on redhat linux.

I have used the procedure bellow but it doesn't seem to work


#vi /etc/sysconfig/iptables


add this line
# -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state –state NEW -m tcp -p tcp –dport 1158 -j ACCEPT
# -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state –state NEW -m tcp -p tcp –dport 1521 -j ACCEPT

Restart IPTABLES
# /etc/init.d/iptables restart

verify that the ports are open
#netstat | grep 1158
#netstat | grep 1521

telnet you can telnet to those port

telnet localhost   1158

or

telnet ip-of-server 1158

see if you can connect or not

if you can telnet to  1158 from out side of the server
which mean, the port is opened


Now if you cant telnet 1521 from out side of server
which means , the services is not enabled on that port

or you have not open that port from firewall  

but by looking at yoru question, its lik port 1521 (tcp ) is open

do this

lsof -iTCP | grep 1521

lsof -iTCP | grep 1558

see what runnign on those port

As fosiul01 pointed
lsof -i:<portnumber>
if there is a process that is bound to this port, you will get the listing.

The procedure you followed depends on where you placed those two lines.
Presumably you do not have an explicit deny after which you add the referenced lines.

Try this:
iptables -L RH-Firewall-1-INPUT --line-numbers

iptables -I RH-Firewall-1-INPUT <x> -p tcp –dport 1158 -j ACCEPT
iptables -I RH-Firewall-1-INPUT <x> -p tcp –dport 1121 -j ACCEPT

(running the above commands makes the changes effective immediately but a restart of the iptables or the system will revert back since these changes are unsaved until you run /etc/init.d/iptables save)

Where <x> is replaced with a row number (depending on how many lines in your existing chain, 4,5 or 6 should be fine to use.  Make sure you do not have a Deny/Reject rule after which you are adding these entries.

Double check that you did not alter the ports

netstat -an | egrep '(1158|1121)'

Fosiul01 pointed out that the connection is made, but the process might involve encryption which might explain why you are not seing anything after the connection is established.
