open port 9000 on Centos 5.9 Linux
Posted on 2014-01-27
when I use this command:
iptables -A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 9000 -j ACCEPT -m comment --comment "Xdebug port"
iptables: Unknown error 4294967295
I researched and some said it could be related to the virtualization like OpenVZ. But I contacted Godaddy tech for the VPS and he couldn't tell me the virtulization. BTW, just my two cents the tech for Godaddy and in general I find it terrible. Don't use them. I've used other VPS providers and the other providers like Bluehost are much, much more helpful when things go wrong. But Godaddy's support is pretty poor and their general reply is find the solution yourself.
the tech said that a simple iptables INPUT will work. So what is a simpler version of this command to open up this port?
Thank you =)
