View Full Version : [ubuntu] How do you open a port?

Well, I was recently trying to do some gaming, but for it to network properly it needs port 2092 open. How would I do that?

Ports in ubuntu are, as far as I know, only "closed" until something is actually listening to that port. You can list this with
While the application is running. If port 2092 is listed, it should be "open".
Is this LAN or online gaming you're doing?
Otherwise, have a look at the docs for iptables: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo

thats right.. you really dont have to do anything to open a port in ubuntu.. if there is an application listening to a port in ubuntu then ubuntu would automatically open that port..
