I am running apache2 on Ubuntu 9.10, and I want expose a particular site through port 10045.
My first instinct was to go to ufw and open that port. I've done that, and if I do a list of rules in ufw I get this:
Status: active To Action From -- ------ ---- 80/tcp ALLOW 192.168.1.0/24 443/tcp ALLOW Anywhere 22/tcp ALLOW 192.168.1.0/24 9418/tcp ALLOW Anywhere 10045/tcp ALLOW Anywhere
But if I run nmap I get this:
Starting Nmap 5.00 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2010-08-02 18:15 BST Interesting ports on myserver (192.168.1.65): Not shown: 996 closed ports PORT STATE SERVICE 22/tcp open ssh 80/tcp open http 443/tcp open https 9418/tcp open unknown
And if I check specifically for 10045:
PORT STATE SERVICE 10045/tcp closed unknown
If I try and visit the web site, then I just get a timeout.
What do I have to do to get the port open?
