http://serverfault.com – I am trying to open port 3306 (for remote mysql connections) on my ubuntu 12.04 server machine but for the life of me can't get the damned thing to work! Here is what I did: 1) list current firewall rules: $> sudo iptables -nL -v output: Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT 0 packets, 0 bytes) pkts bytes target prot opt in out source destination 225 16984 fail2ban-ssh tcp -- * * 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 multiport dports 22 220 69605 ACCEPT all -- lo * 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 0 0 REJECT all -- lo (HowTos)
