iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -m tcp -p tcp -dport 2082 -j ACCEPT
where eth0 is the ethernet nic you are accessing through... try that out
this didn't work- but then again i don't know what (eth0) 'ethernet nic' means
i'm on dialup- external serial port modem- i tried googling around for ethernet nic and i don't have a clue.
i noticed on my cpanel it says :2083 so i tried that port with above command as well- still no luck
i tried iptables --help, and a few variations of above command, all with no luck
thanks for the help, any other clues?
