I don't understand whats going on with my rootserver...
I have reset iptables and just opened the port for ssh.
Now suddenly over night I see that there are a various of ports open:
21,80, 135, 139, 445, 3128
Could it be that vsftpd for example put rules in automatically to allow input on port 21?
I also tried disabling iptables with this command:
I used an online tool to create an iptables firewall. Basically I just need port 22 and 1194 open to the outside world. But I noticed this bash script has input, forward and output chains as accept by default. Is it blocking all traffic but those two ports? Thanks.
service iptables stop
iptables -P INPUT DROP
iptables -P OUTPUT ACCEPT
iptables -P FORWARD DROP
iptables -A INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m multiport --dports 22,80,443 -m state --state NEW,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
service iptables save
service iptables restart
works as expected on a Centos 6.3 server (provided by VPSBlocks.com.au) but
I am seting up a Centos 5.6 sever. I yum installed webmin successfully,and then I followed webmin's document to add "-A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 10000 -j ACCEPT" to /etc/sysconfig/iptables ,but when I /etc/init.d/iptables restart. I get
Applying iptables firewall rules: iptables-restore: line 1 failed
