I have a service i just installed on a ubuntu workstation machine. Say its running under port 511. I can connect locally :
telnet localhost 511
When i try to connect from a remote machine it fails
telnet 192.168.0.1 511
Whats wierd is i tried to connect locally using the ip address and i get the following error:
"Unable to connect to remote host: Connection Refused"
I checked the status of the firewall:
sudo ufw status
and get back "status:inactive"
So does anyone know why i can't connect remotely since the firewall is disabled and why can't i connect locally using its ip address. I don't know if this matters but its running under esxi.
