I'm trying to configure my VPS so it'll host a teamspeak server, but I've hit a snag with correctly configuring iptables to allow connections in. I attempted to do it myself, but I ended up allowing TCP in instead of UDP. How do I go about deleting this and/or inputting in an allow UDP on 9987 rule?

'ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:9987'


iptables -A INPUT -p udp --dport 9987 -j ACCEPT

-A means "Append to the end of the named chain" -p means "what protocol?" --dport lets you specify port and -j means "jump to this chain."

  • -A actually means "Append" to the end of the named chain. Conversely, -I means "Insert" to the top of the chain. – fukawi2 Jan 6 '13 at 4:25
