I'm trying to configure my
iptables in order to allow
Pidgin to use
Bonjour protocol, now according to: Bonjour for Windows doesn't work due to firewall settings, I have to allow
Multicast DNS / (5353/udp).
[alexus@wcmisdlin02 ~]$ cat /etc/redhat-release Scientific Linux release 6.4 (Carbon) [alexus@wcmisdlin02 ~]$ uname -a Linux wcmisdlin02.uftmasterad.org 2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu May 16 11:21:38 CDT 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux [alexus@wcmisdlin02 ~]$ sudo iptables -L | grep mdns ACCEPT udp -- anywhere anywhere state NEW udp dpt:mdns [alexus@wcmisdlin02 ~]$ grep '5353/udp' /etc/services mdns 5353/udp # Multicast DNS [alexus@wcmisdlin02 ~]$
I'm still unable to communiate w/ others through
Bonjour even though
iptables is configured. Any ideas why?
