I have setup a service on my server which has opened a port (ie, 40000) but its foreign address is :::* which is a wildcard ipv6 address (I think)
When I run telnet localhost 40000 on the server the connection is working fine, but when I try to telnet from my local machine it doesn't work.
When I telnet from my local machine Im using an ipv4 address.
How can I have the port to listen on an ipv4 address rather than an ipv6 address.
By the way, when I run netstat -anp --tcp --udp to check the open ports this is what I get for the port I'm trying to open
Local Address: :::40000
Foreign Address: :::*
