For the Love of God, how do you open ports in linux please!

Ok after three days of messing with this. If you have a linux Firewall and another ISP requires port 8087 to be opened to connected to their control panel What on earth is the file you edit?? I have tried iptables etc..there's another file somewhere that I edited before I reinstalled that did the trick but cannot rememember. I do remember that I added it to the "Safe
ports" section.

I typed this in and saved it and even rebooted to no avail.

iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 8087 -j ACCEPT..

Did not work. If I plug in my dlink router it works fine! Where is this file that I edit??

Can anyone help please??

Presumably your ISP needs you to connect to their port 8087, rather than for them to connect to yours.

iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp --dport 8087 --sport 1024:65535 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --sport 8087 --dport 1024:65535 -j ACCEPT
