Hello Experts,

I am testing aws micro instance, RHL.

I was able to set up vsftpd successfully and transfer files ok.

However, I tried opening a port, 25565, but I am unable to telnet to it. Any ideas why?

below are the current iptable rules:
[ec2-user@ip-172-31-3-98 ~]$ sudo /sbin/iptables -L -n -v --line-numbers
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT 0 packets, 0 bytes)
num   pkts bytes target     prot opt in     out     source               destination
1    54765   71M ACCEPT     all  --  *      *       0.0.0.0/0            0.0.0.0/0           state RELATED,ESTABLISHED
2        0     0 ACCEPT     icmp --  *      *       0.0.0.0/0            0.0.0.0/0
3       30  1280 ACCEPT     all  --  lo     *       0.0.0.0/0            0.0.0.0/0
4       31  1512 ACCEPT     tcp  --  *      *       0.0.0.0/0            0.0.0.0/0           state NEW tcp dpt:22
5        0     0 ACCEPT     tcp  --  *      *       0.0.0.0/0            0.0.0.0/0           state NEW tcp dpt:25565
6        0     0 REJECT     all  --  *      *       0.0.0.0/0            0.0.0.0/0           reject-with icmp-host-prohibited

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT 0 packets, 0 bytes)
num   pkts bytes target     prot opt in     out     source               destination
1        0     0 REJECT     all  --  *      *       0.0.0.0/0            0.0.0.0/0           reject-with icmp-host-prohibited

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT 10 packets, 3424 bytes)
num   pkts bytes target     prot opt in     out     source               destination

Open in new window


I telnet to aws instance public IP

telnet aws-instance-public-ip 25565... could not open connection to the host, on port 25565: connect failed

In advance, thank you for your help...

what does
netstat -antp | grep 25565  
tell you?

If nothing shows up then the service isn't started, or it uses a different port.
