    Hello,
    Hope al is well. I came onto this site in the hopes that someone oculd give me some instructions on how to open a server port. I have root access, but am really unsure of any of the necessary steps to take in order to open a port.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    That depends on how you have it firewalled...

    If you're using APF, edit the /etc/apf/conf.apf file. Look for "ingress" which are ports opened to allow traffic from the outside in. There are a couple of sections based on whether it's tcp or udp traffic, icmp, etc.

    Once you've made the change, you'll have to restart APF : service apf restart

    If you're using another method... post what you're doing.
