how open incoming port

Asked by heather michel on 2011-01-01

I am trying to open up a port for incoming connections. Can be any number but it defaulted to 56803. I tried doing 'sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 56803 -j ACCEPT' But the transmission preferences>network tab still tells me the port is closed or sometimes 'Status Unknown'.. Help?? On latest ubuntu release... Dell xps 410 machine.
Router is a westell 7500.

You need port forwarding. Check out the following link and forward 56803 port to your internal ip.
