I have a brand new install of CentOS 6 64bit. I've been going through the installation process and when I get to #3 to start it up it looks like it's started.

Trying to do #4, I open a new PuTTY window connect on port 4670 in Raw mode then type in GET /push/1/iframe/test HTTP/1.1 and hit enter twice. Nothing happens on either screen and the raw on crashed after a few seconds.

I have port 80 and 4670 open in iptables. Can anyone explain what I'm doing wrong/not doing?

Did you check your logs? Is meteord running? – Iain May 24 '12 at 5:17
When I start it through init.d it just show "Starting Meteord:" then takes me back to the prompt. It has a log that shows it started with the process. The processes show "root 11653 0.0 0.5 135896 5580 pts/0 S 23:23 0:00 meteord daemon". The PID matches the log file. – kel May 24 '12 at 5:27

I got it to work. What I did was disabled SELinux, rebooted and made sure my ports were set correctly in the firewall. After I did that, it worked.
