    Hello guys, I need help in configuring my firewall to accept incoming and outgoing on 1935 port (used for streaming) . I have installed a media server on my dedicated server and have an application running on server which creates flv files on media server. I need to play those files from my android app but it appears that my firewall is blocking rtmp port i.e. 1935.

    I have planned to:
    1. Turn off the firewall and then check if the files is played via rtmp://serverip/path to file.flv
    2. if step 1 works then i need to configure firewall settings to let packets to and from on the port 1935

    Thanks and Regards

    Hello :)

    I recommend using a third-party firewall such as CSF if you are not familiar with manually modifying your iptables firewall rules. You can find CSF at:

    ConfigServer Firewall

    Thank you.

    Agreed, it is a great firewall. They offer other good things for your server as well.
