Whatsapp not working via Linux proxy server


I have a linux Centos 5.5 proxy server for access to the internet. I have subnets behind the proxy server which access the internet.
Whatsapp is not working when mobile devices browse the internet via the proxy, but the other internet services are working fine.
I have tried to open various ports includding 443 and 5222 but Whatsapp cannot work.

Regards

Promise

That is wrong. CentOS 5 is at Update 11. Not keeping up to date with releases is a cause for concern because it is a sign of poor security and maintenance standards. I suggest you verify the integrity of that machine, and any adjacent machines lacking updates, and update before doing anything else.

First of all this seems to be a continuation of this thread of yours that you never responded to back then. That is not efficient. Secondly business_kid offered a list of port numbers to use. You should be as complete and list the ports you have checked and show you have logged traffic on those ports to verify they were in use (or not) by this application. Next to that he also hinted at ports possibly having changed which you may or may not have researched or checked.

So. If you haven't done so then this is the point where you set up a subnet for testing purposes, configure traffic logging and show us the result of running the application within that subnet to verify which ports are in use (or not) by this application.
