Firewall issue


Hi all,

I've a problem with firewall configuration which blocks the client s/w to interact with the server.It says the user server is offline

When I disable the firewall and use the same combination of username and password to let the client software to interact,server allows it to interact with by accepting the connection.

Any suggestion on how to configure the firewall?

You have to add to /etc/host.allow

Check the firewall and verify that the ports you want use are open and that connections from the network are allowed.
