A service is running in my system (redhat linux) which opens the port 9000.
When i do
# telnet localhost 9000
Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).
Escape character is '^]'.
But when i do the same with my network ip,
# telnet 172.21.198.62 9000
telnet: connect to address 172.21.198.62: Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
Why is that ?
I've diabled the firewall using
service iptables stop
Moreover this happens only for this port,
telnet 172.21.198.62 22 works properly.
