I have installed and web application which is running on port 8080 on centOS. I only have command line access (through putty) to that machine. I have tried to access that application from my windows machine from which I am connected through putty, but it is giving connection time out error.
Then I have tried to open port 8080. I have added following entry into the iptables.
-A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 8080 -j ACCEPT
First, you should disable
selinux, edit file
/etc/sysconfig/selinux so it looks like this:
Save file and restart system.
Then you can add the new rule to
iptables -A INPUT -m state --state NEW -p tcp --dport 8080 -j ACCEPT
and restart iptables with
If it doesn't work you should check other network settings.
