    Open Non Standard Port on VPS



    I have a Managed VPS Service from GoDaddy. I am running a website on port 80. I have another application which will use a non standard TCP port i.e. 9000.


    I have already added the exception in the Firewall but still I am not able to communicate to the port 9000 from outside VPS.


    So, anyone in the Community know or can suggest, how do I open the port 9000 to receive requests from internet?


    Thanks & Regards

    Hello @mrperfectionist


    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 9000 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp --sport 9000 -j ACCEPT

    D= destination so incoming
    S= source so outgoing.


    Hope this helps you.

    Good luck.

    Hi GoDaddy expert,
    I own a Linux hosting with GoDaddy and I'm running a phone web application. At the moment I'm trying to run a Java service in port 80, but it's rejecting. Could you please let me know how to enable this port or could it be some other issue. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!!
