Firewall / Fedora Core


I am running Fedora core 4, I'm used a program, however my firewall won't let it access the internet, yes, i am a newbie to this, but Fedora core i know is most user friendly. How do i open it up or access the firewall to let the program through?

First, does the program work with the firewall off? Also could you provide some details about what program you're using, including what ports in uses.

I'm trying to just set up a few programs, but my firewall won't let any of them through. like for instance, Limewire. It wouldn't allow access, which is wierd, because when i used wine to install Ares, i could access internet with ares. Dunno why limewire won't work, but Ares will

To open the limewire (gnutella) port do the following as root:
Code:
iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 6346 -j ACCEPT
iptables -I INPUT -p udp --dport 6346 -j ACCEPT
service iptables save
It's been awhile since I've used limewire, so you should check the limewire docs and verify that the port number is correct. If you aren't comfortable with the command line, the use the firewall config GUI in Start->System Settings->Security Level and enter the appropriate port number in the "other ports" box.
