Connection refused error

I have a server application written in java when I run the server in Linux and the client on Windows I am not able to connect to the server I get a Connection refused exception. The server aplication uses the port 5050. After running the server application i even used netstat command to find if the server is listening on the specified port and it was Listening.. But the client would not connect . But when I run the server application in Windows and the client in Linux am able to connect to the server application. Pls Help

any firewalls blocking traffic to port 5050?
iptables -nvL
should help you ascertain that.

You can also run
tcpdump port 5050
to check what exactly is happening.
