    How to open ports 6112-6119

    I need to ensure ports 6112 through 6119 are open.

    I tried using Firestarter to do this, but when I search for what ports are open, it says none of them are.

    I use Ubuntu 9.04.

    If I remember well, a standard ubuntu installation has by default all ports close. So I believe it is normal that you did not see anything in firestarter - although I do not use it (and thus can't be sure) - unless you have already configured server software in your box.

    This snippet will list your iptables rules (the <...> part must be filled by you, its your account name) in a file `ipt-rules' inside your home directory. Attach the file or copy its contents in your message, to figure out where you should put your allow commands.

    sudo -i
    iptables --list-rules > /home/<account>/ipt-rules
    chown <account>:<account> /home/<account>/ipt-rules
    Tell me also for what protocol(s) you want your ports to be open; there is no need (and is not generally advised) to be open for all.
