Question How to open ports on linux "5.6" 64 bit (Tikanga)


Hi all
I am new to Linux. I am installing oracle OBIEE 11g on Linux Red Hat 5.6 64 bits and I got stuck at ports not open error.

I tried adding the following line in the iptables file:

-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 5900:5964 -j ACCEPT

Then Restart iptables service, But did not have any success still getting the same error.

Please Help? how do I open ports on my server.

Thanks

Have you tried the tool system-config-securitylevel-tui? It is a command based graphic tool for configure the firewall. Makes things a bit easier if you don't need advanced configurations.

Run the tool and go to customize. From there you can easily open up the ports
