Question Configure FC1 firewall in command line


I'm setting up an apache web server on a Fedora box, i have the firewall enabled but i need to open another port besides port 80. Im not using an x windows system so i can't use the GUI utility that comes with Fedora. Ive tried looking for an answer online but everything i found was GUI related.

You need to configure apache to run on the desired port.
I am also guessing that you want to add a rule to accept traffic on that port.

iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport xxxx -j ACCEPT

Where xxxx is the desired port number.
