I am trying to get my new MediaWiki server to allow connections to our MySql Server and right now I cannot get my iptables firewall set up right for this.
The rule I am applying is the following
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -d 126.96.36.199 --dport 3306 -j ACCEPT # MySQL
But my iptables log is still show that the connections can not be established and is being blocked/denied.
Nov 21 09:48:39 hds-it kernel: Firewall Deny: [OUTPUT] IN= OUT=eth1 SRC=188.8.131.52 DST=184.108.40.206 LEN=60 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=64 ID=29232 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=58862 DPT=3306 SEQ=914529531 ACK=0 WINDOW=14600 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0 OPT (020405B40402080A03BCF2BC0000000001030307)
When I turn off iptables, everything works as it should including editing the wiki database. What am I doing wrong with my rule?
Edit: here is my output from iptables -L -n -v => http://pastie.org/5413124 I could not get it to format right here.
