unable open specific UDP ports


Hi all

i am very new to linux and working with SuseLinux.
have tried to open UDP ports (67,69,4011,13331) which are for my application. i have modified the configuration file accordingly and started the firewall, but i didn't work. Even i tried with iptables
but it didn't work.

Can any one help me in this regard.
thanks
mv.

what application? what configuration file? what iptables commands? you do not "open" ports with iptables, you prevent traffic to them. without a firewall any port could be open, but it's up to an application to actually open it in the first place.
