Fedora :: Get A "Connection Refused" Error When Trying To Telnet To Port 7500?
Sep 6, 2010
Ok, a bit of a backround. I am a recent Ubuntu user and made the switch to Fedora being utilized as a server. I am trying to move to a new MUD(text based D&D type game) codebaseI have gotten my code compiled and executed the startup script. The process shows in the ps ux list. As the game it set up it uses port 7500. As the script running I get a "Connection Refused" error when trying to telnet to port 7500. Upon using nmap, I show only my SSH port open (the only daemon I have installed currently) yet no port 7500 open.
I believe this to be an issue somewhere in Fedora as I've had no issue on Ubuntu with past MUD codebases.I have disabled the firewall within Fedora and still no luck. Please bare with me as I'm new to fedora's intricacies.Short Story for those that hate reading long winded posts: A port that should be open by acript known to work on other distro's doesn't seem to open the called port using Fedora
I am doing some R&D on 11g RMAN in oracle at home. i have installed oracle enterprise linux and i have installed oracle software. when i am trying to configure listener, it is error-ed out. i have verified that telnet with the port is not working and i am seeing connection refused error.
My problem is that the Mailserver in OpenSuse 11.1 (postfix, amavisd, spamassassin, clamAV en Razor) can not recieve e-mails, outgoing is ok. The problem started when I added 2 new users to de LDAP-server connected to Postfix.Some users can login, but most of them are getting the error: cant connect POP3 connection refused port 995.
I'm trying to make an SSH script for my place of employment. This script, I want to go out to the server hostnames we have specified (in another file) and change a users account password. We use Kerberized telnet, so if telnet root hostname fails, I want it to use ssh username hostname and use the old password (specified). If both fail, I want it to ask the user what the port should be and input the port in the ssh command.
But I'm having a issue having it try telnet root hostname and if it fails then, try to ssh in, I have no clue how to have it proceed. Is it an if statement? Here's the telnet failed message: telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
I'm trying to connect with my server via telnet, but when i sent the command (telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx Port) doesn't works and shows then follow error: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused, It happens with any port. Is strange but my telnet services works (telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx), In addition, i tried with firewall enabled and disabled and the problem still happens. My centOS run on virtualbox.
I have CENTOS 5.4 Installed in one machine and i used Real IP provided by our ISP.My requirements for Mailserver are:
everythings done but when i tried to telnet my External IP it giving me an error of telnet connection refused but i can able to ssh to my external IP and also i disabled the firewall but still no luck.
I have an application that uses a telnet console, and I have an autostart script to start it (and check that it is running).The problem is that if the program is not startet by root, or by using sudo, I cant get access to the telnet console, it just says "connection refused".The application works fine, but I cant acces its console, so I have to shut it down, and then restart it with sudo to be able to log in to it.Anyone know how to make the script start the application with enough rights?
I want to create script wherein it will check the application if its running. The command that I'll be using to check the application is telnet (if you can recommend others, that's ok). I've an application and it is listening to port 1808. If I do telnet localhost 1808, the response is :
What I want to happen is if the response is like to code above, it will execute a commands. Obviously, above code knows that the application is not working so I need to execute a commands. I created a script before using expect but I don't think it will work because I haven't establish a shell yet unlike successful telnet I could spawn expect.
I have my desktop computer (running F13) configured to accept ssh over port 22 via the firewall configuration tool. If I type ifconfig -a, this computer, which is running on my wireless network, tells me:
However, if I go to my laptop computer (also running F13) and try and ssh into the desktop, i.e. ssh email@example.com, I get this response:
ssh: connect to host 192.168.1.100 port 22: Connection refused.
I guess I am confused to what is blocking the connection? Is there another means on F13 other than the default Firewall? I haven't really messed with the network at all. For what it's worth, I am hoping to set things up so I can just ssh into the computer name, (ssh icthy@desktop) eventually, but want to start with the IP. So, can anyone offer a hint as to what I can look for that is blocking port 22?
when i try a telnet to a host like that: telnet 10.10.10.10 1234 i got this: telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused.
1/ does this mean that the problem is not due to a firewall, but that the host 10.10.10.10 doesn't listen on the port 1234? other way does this mean that my firewall is authorizing traffic on the port 1234?
and when i try a telnet on another port like that: telnet 10.10.10.10 1235 i get: Trying 10.10.10.10 ...
in this case this
2/ does this mean that the firewall is blocking the traffic between my host and the 10.10.10.10 on the port 1235?
I am running CentOS 5.1 on VMware on Win 7 On CentOS I added Bridged network adapter and the server is connected to internet without any problems, but when I telnet any server on port 25 I get connection timeout.
telnet f.mx.mail.yahoo.com 25 Trying 188.8.131.52... telnet: connect to address 184.108.40.206: Connection timed out telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection timed out
I stopped all servers, iptables and sendmail on the linux server and the firewalls on the win 7 but still getting the same error! I added new network adapter ( host-only ) and tried to telnet the win machine from vmware Linux but I got connection refused
telnet 192.168.71.1 25 Trying 192.168.71.1... telnet: connect to address 192.168.71.1: Connection refused telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
I am merely trying to change the port for my ssh server.However it isn't changing.I edited my ssh_config file to:
# This is the ssh client system-wide configuration file. See # ssh_config(5) for more information. This file provides defaults for[code]...
When i try to connect to my server via port 443 i get a connection refused error. However when i try to connect via port 22 it connects. Since that didn't work, i tried restarting the entire server.To restate, i changed the config file and restarted ssh then the computer, however the port didn't change.Ohh and yes my router is set to port forwarding on port 443, though it doesn't matter since I'm inside the network.
I get a connection refused error whenever I attempt to connect to a remote ssh server, I tried the test at and it says outbound ssh port 22 is not being blocked. I'm wondering what else could be the problem.
Friday night I was working on some networking stuff between my two Fedora 14 boxes. I have my laptop and my desktop. on both machines I have "system-config-firewall 1.2.27" and "iptables" (i believe both come standard on F14?) I kept getting the same message as seen below before realizing perhaps I should check my firewall!
I added a rule for incoming and outgoing traffic on port 22 and was able to get in with no problems at all! however today I can't ssh into anything... I can't use "Remote Desktop Viewer 2.31.4" to vnc into the machine anymore. I can't remember the exact error message at this time, it's something close to "Connection was terminated" or "Unable to connect" I can update this message later.
last night I foolishly uninstalled the system-config-firewall and then uninstalled iptables to see if it was a simple firewall issue.... totally hosed my system <insert smiley!>
After reinstalling and realizing I didn't backup my documents <insert smiley!...again...> I started reinstalling all of my applications. I'm still unable to use ssh and I've tried to ssh my own computer.
Is this possible?
# ssh 127.0.0.1 ssh: connect to host 127.0.0.1 port 22: Connection refused
having a port 22:connection refused problem with SSH. None of what I have read has been what I have been experiencing, so I figured I would post here. The worst that could happen is this gets completely ignored, or I am told that there is already a solution, that I missed it, and directed to it. Here is my problem:
Just learned how to ssh into my machine a few days ago. Everything has been running smoothly until I ran into a little problem: all of a sudden I can't connect anymore. I have sshd-server installed and updated. I have sshd turned on
Code: /sbin/service sshd start And I even ran:
Code: /etc/init.d/sshd start Because I was told that it would start ssh from boot. Nothing has changed from today and yesterday and I haven't been having problems with port 22 being blocked.
I have also tried to ssh into the machine by the machine itself:
I have just built a new postifx open relay server to allow my ISP clients to send emails. During testing of the SMPT protocol, I can managed to send emails to my localhost however, I can't send emails to other external mail server. Below is a test to a yahoo account. Aug 7 15:03:55 mx2 postfix/smtp: connect to g.mx.mail.yahoo.com[220.127.116.11]: Connection refused (port 25) Aug 7 15:03:55 mx2 postfix/smtp: F084EC8D76: to=<firstname.lastname@example.org>, relay=none, delay=8.5, delays=1.2/0.05/7.3/0, dsn=4.4.1, status=deferred (connect to g.mx.mail.yahoo.com[18.104.22.168]: Connection refused)
I cannot use GRsync from Ubuntu Desktop to PCLinuxOS laptop.The 2 computers can ping each other. I have disabled both firewalls. My laptop IP address is 192.168.1.11This is the error on Ubuntu Grsync:
ssh: connect to host 192.168.1.11 port 22: Connection refused rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender] rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(601) [sender=3.0.7] Rsync process exit status: 12
On PCLinuxOS it wont say Ethernet is connected when trying a static address setup.However it does connect to the internet via auto Ethernet setup and a LAN cable. It then says connected. In order to use SSH and GRsync what programs are required? I have these installed on both machines: grsync openssh-client openssh-server
I have become convinced that rsync for CentOS 5 is broken. I'm trying to set up automatic backups between 2 servers in 2 different countries using rsync under CentOS 5.I can get manual backups to work between the 2 servers by doing two things I shouldn't need to do, but automatic backups fail and I see no solution.Here are the problems I am encountering: According to the instructions I've read everywhere, I am to set up two configuration files:
When I run rsync from root, it apparently just totally ignores these two files. No custom greeting, no log, no password used. Even when I specify --password-file=/etc/rsyncd.secrets in the command line, it still ignores it. I am prompted and I must enter the password manually. Let me back up a moment. After first installing rsync, when I ran any command to access the root server, I get this error:
ssh: connect to host 22.214.171.124 port 22: Connection refused rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender] rsync error: unexplained error (code 255) at io.c(463) [sender=2.6.8]
I read everywhere that rsync uses port 873, not port 22 which is used for SSH. Why is rsync on CentOS trying to use port 22?I have SSH switched from port 22 to another port (let's call it 5432 here) and block port 22.So, I have added this to the command line:
Then I get a connection ...
... but it prompts me for my password. It doesn't matter that I have my username and password, same one, in /etc/rsyncd.secrets on both servers. It still asks.And it rejects my password!The only way I can get it to connect is by creating an SSH user on the remote server for this.Even then, rsync STILL prompts me for a password, even though:
1. the username and password are specified in the /etc/rsyncd.secrets files on both servers
2. I've added the command line parameter --password-file=/etc/rsyncd.secrets Therefore, it is totally impossible to use an any cron job or other automatic synchronization, under CentOS 5.
I have FileZilla installed on this machine, and OpenSSH (with an open port 22) on another machine on my home network. When I try and connect, I get: Quote: Status:Connecting to 192.168.2.3... Response:fzSftp started Command: open "email@example.com" 22 Error:Connection refused Error:Could not connect to server
Which has left me puzzled as I have an open port. Does the username have to be defined somewhere? E.g. the machine acting as my SFTP server can be logged on to locally as alphatwo so that's what I logged in as (with the correct password). Is this correct? If so, does anyone have any ideas as to how I might rectify it? I want SFTP set up so I can copy PHP files from my laptop to /var/www/html/ on another PC (across the home network).
I am getting "ssh:connect to host restart port 22: Connection refused" error when trying to start "ssh" in Ubuntu. I uncommented the port 22 in ssh_config, I dont have iptables setup...Did try to check if the port is listening using the netstat -an | grep "LISTEN" & couldnt find.
