I'm having a Ubuntu 14.04 server which has a TomCat installation listening on port 8080. I installed CSF today.

Following is netstat -tulpn

tcp6       0      0 :::8080                 :::*                    LISTEN      8278/java

This is my IPV6 part of csf.conf

    # Allow incoming IPv6 TCP ports
TCP6_IN = "20,21,22,25,53,80,110,143,443,465,587,993,995,8080"

# Allow outgoing TCP ports
TCP6_OUT = "20,21,22,25,53,80,110,113,443,993,995,8080"

# Allow incoming UDP ports
UDP6_IN = "20,21,53,8080"

# Allow outgoing UDP ports
# To allow outgoing traceroute add 33434:33523 to this list 
UDP6_OUT = "20,21,53,113,123,8080"

Following is the csf -p output

8080/tcp   -/6  -     (8278/root)          /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/bi... /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/java

I have restarted csf with csf -r but i cannot connect to port 8080. There are no related error messages on lfd.log and if I diable csf I can connect to TomCat instance running on 8080.

What may be causing this and how to open port 8080 through CSF.

Thank you

  • I presume you are trying to connect via IPv6 to port 8080, correct? Because your csf -p output shows that port 8080 is open only for IPv6. – Cha0s Jan 24 '15 at 17:07
  • Yes trying to connect to port 8080 via IPv6 – SriKolla Jan 24 '15 at 17:09
  • It's a long shot, but is it possible your IPv6 Address is listed on /etc/csf/csf.deny thus blocking your requests when CSF is running? – Cha0s Jan 24 '15 at 17:11
  • Hi, thanx. I rechecked my csf.deny and it does not contain my ip or not even one from my country :( – SriKolla Jan 24 '15 at 17:14
  • What's the output of ip6tables -L -v -n | grep "dpt:8080" ? – Cha0s Jan 24 '15 at 17:18
