How To Unblock Ports? - Urgent
This may be a silly thing, but i am new to the dedicated server and SSH platform.
I'm trying to install HyperVM (I know, it isn't great, but need something quick) but need to unblock ports 8888 and 8887. I have no idea on how to do this via SSH. I've looked on Google, but nothing.
If you have a suggestion for another VPS panel which you think is much better than HyperVM and is free, please let me know. I might aswell install that then.

You could try:
iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp --sport 8887 -d xx.xx.xx.xx -j ACCEPT
iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp --sport 8888 -d xx.xx.xx.xx -j ACCEPT
where xx.xx.xx.xx is your IP address
The quick and dirty way would be to drop your firewall (this will open ALL ports):
service iptables stop
Thanks! But it doesn't work :-(
No worries. Screw HyperVM. Time for SolusVM after all of the research.

The following iptables rules will block ports 8887 8888,
iptables -A INPUT -s 0/0 -p tcp --dport 8887 -j DROP
iptables -A INPUT -s 0/0 -p tcp --dport 8888 -j DROP
