I'm using the dansguardian-gui and iTalc at our school. iTalc is a program to allow me to view and control the computers in a classroom. It runs on port 5900. How can I configure dansguardian/tinyproxy to allow me to still use iTalc? At the moment I cannot access the computers with iTalc.

Thanks for your help.

Open terminal and:


gksudo gedit /etc/init.d/ubuntu_ce_firewall

Look for "## Open port for ssh server (22), web server (80), and mail server (25)"

Copy and paste below line under it:

iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 5900 -m state --state NEW -j ACCEPT

Save and close the file.

Restart firewall:

sudo /etc/init.d/ubuntu_ce_firewall restart

Try iTalc again.
