Hi! I’m having some pretty frustrating issues, I’m not completely sure what/why this is happening, and I’m also not the best when it comes to this stuff, so I’m hoping maybe you guys can help!
Last night I was doing some tweaking and tried to open a port, I noticed that the port was saying it’s opening, but when I would run
sudo netstat -tulpn | grep LISTENit wouldn’t show the port I just opened. After doing some searching I found that when running
sudo ufw status it would return “Inactive” - after enabling it, I noticed that my ports we showing as open, so I closed my terminal. Fast forward a few hours, I’m not longer able to connect to my server via SSH or FTP. Every time I try to connect, I get a “Connect Timed Out” error https://i.imgur.com/kd5TPJq.png - I opened a ticket and was told that my servers firewall was not configured. I took a look at it, but couldn’t seem to get any better results.
I’d appreciate any help on this, if you need anymore info, let me know!
