Servers running Debian7.7, Mongodb 188.8.131.52-1.1, Nmap6.0 - Thanks for your time.
I've user who can't connect to mongodb from his Win7 desktop. He has mongodb installed on it and he's trying to connect from the CML. There's no firewall between the two. But they are on different VLANs. The user can connect to the server using SSH.
I thought that if a port is in the listen state, it's open and could accept a connection from a client. Is that not the case?
