Are you using a firewall? If yes, what firewall solution is being used? (e.g., manual configuration of iptables, a hardware firewall from the data center, or a third-party script such as an iptables wrapper)

Unless you're using a firewall of some sort there is no action required to utilize a custom port.

If you're using a firewall then you would need to edit the configuration of that firewall.

If no firewall is in use, such as via firewall rules in an iptables configuration, then there is no action required to allow access on a specific port.

The following command may be used to check the iptables status:
Code:
# /etc/init.d/iptables status
Using the same initialization script for iptables (as seen above) it is possible to "stop" and "start" an iptables-based firewall.

If a firewall is active and assistance is needed to customize the rule set I recommend checking with the data center staff, on-site systems administrators, or server management team where applicable.
