Kazaa Connection


I have a problem about Kazaa Connection. I'm using RedHat 8.0 linux as a server and i also have local network and local ip address is on eth1. And eth1's ip address is . And my public ip address is on eth0.

When i try to open Kazaa from my local network PC ( i.e: , it writes "Connecting" but it does not connect.
On the other hand, when i try "telnet 1214" from local network PC ( , i have seen the message "Connecting To not open a connection to host on port 1214 : Connect failed"

I have also checked the file "/etc/squid/squid.conf" and i have inserted the Kazaa port number 1214 into the file. But nothing has changed.

I am not very experienced about Linux, so it is hard to fix it.

What can the problem be? Is there anyone who has seen this problem before or any helpful wants to give advice about this?

Thanks anyway.

I'm no expert, but I think you need to post some details about how you have your server set up. Can you browse the internet from your local network? Have you set up a firewall on the linux box? Did you set up telnet to listen to port 1214? It doesn't listen to that by default.
