I get “Failed to Connect Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at 127.0.0.1:3580.” when I try to open a Help File of one of the applications I have.
My /etc/hosts file has its entries right:
127.0.0.1 hostname.hostdomain hostname
My firewall is also disabled.
nmap -sT -O localhost
gives me (I have included some):
2401/tcp open cvspserver
2601/tcp open zebra
5900/tcp open vnc
8009/tcp open ajp13
8085/tcp open unknown
Device type: general purpose
Running: Linux 2.6.X
OS details: Linux 2.6.17 - 2.6.25
I understand that the port 3580 is not opened.
iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 3580 -m state --state ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
doesnot help either.
Please advise what can be done.
