I had installed openfire in VPS using SSH.. but cor client connection need to open some ports

Using $vi /etc/sysconfig/iptables I had added below lines

-A INPUT -p tcp -i eth0 --dport 5222 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -p udp -i eth0 --dport 5222 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -p tcp -i eth0 --dport 7777 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -p udp -i eth0 --dport 7777 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -p tcp -i eth0 --dport 9090 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -p udp -i eth0 --dport 9090 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -p tcp -i eth0 --dport 9091 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -p udp -i eth0 --dport 9091 -j ACCEPT

After this I had restarted configurations by

$iptables-restore < /etc/sysconfig/iptables

Still port not working.. so please help me out.

Hi hareshvidja,

It looks like we didn't have any documentation showing how to open a port on your server, so I wrote the following guide for you:

Opening a Port

I hope this helps, be sure to let me know if you have any follow up questions.
