How do I open specific ports on Linux (an AWS instance of RHEL v. 7)?view story

http://serverfault.com – I'm using RedHat version 7. My AWS instances are in a security group with ample permissions for inbound connectivity. I can do Yum updates. The servers can ping each other. I can transfer files from my workstation to the servers. I even temporarily allowed all traffic from any IP address. This didn't seem to help me. I understand that RedHat v7 doesn't use IP tables by default. (HowTos)
