Firewall


What are the steps to open port 10000 so I can use webmin? I know I have to use the iptables to get this done. clueless

What firewall are you using ? Not so importantly what distro ?

You can install several firewalls to most distributions. Firewalls such as guarddog and firestarter can be installed and they are very easy to configure and distro's such as Mandriva have shorewall very easy to configure.

I'm not sure with RH, I'm sure there's a GUI in there somewhere. You can use the command line...

iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -s 0/0 -d 0/0 --dport 10000 -j ACCEPT

WOW. I just realized your running RH-3.0. Maybe you should think about upgrading.

If you are using RH3.0 - I'm thoroughly shocked/impressed/intrigued!! There have been about 11 releases of Redhat / Fedora Core since then, with Fedora Core 5 being the latest.

I am wondering - how old is your machine? If your machine is anything like recent, then RH3 probably wouldn't recognise most of your hardware - namely graphics cards. Not to mention USB - I'm not sure that USB was even availible way back then.

Sorry for being nosey - I really am intrigued.

Any way have fun.

Probably rlprofessional is using the Enterprise version of Redhat.

Some of the posters are confused. The only utility that Linux uses is iptables. Programs like firestarter, shorewall, guarddog, firewall builder, etc are front ends to iptables.

It is RH 3ES that we are using... thanks for the iptable input it worked.
