how can I open a port #?

Hi there,

I need to open a port# on my raq4 for a credit card authorizing agent... just wondering how I go about doing that.

Which service needs to run on the port? Typically what you'll do is configure whatever program needs the port to use the port

a credit card authorization company needs something like port 41568 open for bi-directional communication using cURL.

try looking at /etc/services -- you can make appropriate modifications to this file

if you don't have root on the box you can't bind any port lower than 1024
