IPTables and mldonkey
I am using IPtables as my firewall. I have done no customizing to it-- basically I used Jamd Linux (RH9)'s standard settings for high security and without any kind of server support.
However, I've found that now that I want to run a P2P filesharing program (mldonkey and xmule) I am unable to do anything with them. I believe that this is because the ports they are trying to access are closed.
Is there a simple way to tell my distro to open up the necessary ports when i start the program, and then close them again when i am done?
