Im trying to install Zope which is a Web Based Process Work Flow engine which uses port 8080, i.e. I should be able to go into firefox and connect to it using: http://127.0.0.1:8080/manage
but when I do that, it said it cant find the page.... apache is up as I can happily connect to 127.0.0.1.
I tried telnet 127.0.0.1 8080 and it says connection refused, which made me look into my iptable config... and as you would expect since I cant connect, port 8080 is closed:
[scoobsky@localhost ~]$ nmap 127.0.0.1 -v -p 8080

Machine 127.0.0.1 MIGHT actually be listening on probe port 80
DNS resolution of 0 IPs took 0.00s. Mode: Async [#: 1, OK: 0, NX: 0, DR: 0, SF: 0, TR: 0, CN: 0]
Initiating Connect() Scan against localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1) [1 port] at 20:49
The Connect() Scan took 0.00s to scan 1 total ports.
Host localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1) appears to be up ... good.
Interesting ports on localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1):
PORT STATE SERVICE
8080/tcp closed http-proxy
now I've tried numerous iptables commands in order to open up port 8080, the most basic of which being:
/sbin/iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 8080 -j ACCEPT
and save my iptables using iptables-save..... which confirm the previous command by displaying my
-A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 8080 -j ACCEPT
rule and then showed COMMIT at the end of it... but to no avail, port 8080 is still blocked...
out of desperation, I downloaded guardog and tried to open up the port on 8080.. but to no avail, it's still closed... then I went wild and (for testing purposes!) and disabled the firewall both from guardog and the "Security Level and Firewal" application under System/Application... and with both firewalls down... I still cant connect to my page in explorer and tellnet still refuses the connection to 127.0.0.1 on port 8080 (although telnet 127.0.0.1 connects me).
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks in advance!
