Hey, I having trouble with a gaming bot that I recently installed on a freshly built OpenSuse 11.1 rig. I’m probably overlooking something obvious, because OpenSuse is not an OS I’ve used all that much. But here goes:
I had this bot running on my vista rig, works fine to host games. When I compiled it on OpenSuse it can’t host any games. I’ve forwarded all the right ports (via my Dlink router) to my OpenSuse rig and went the additional step of completely disabling the firewall (though the “Configure a Firewall” in the menu). Still, when the bot is running I pull up Open Port Check Tool I get “connection refused” for all the ports I need.
Start a service made to listen on those ports. You can also do it
manually with a general TCP tool like netcat (great tool, comes w/SUSE)
with the following syntax (one per port):
netcat -l -p 6112
Note that just listening on a port for fun doesn’t net you much, but if
you had a service listening there then it makes more sense; on the other
hand, telling the server to listen isn’t something you usually need to do
on your own as it happens when the service starts (or else the service
would have no networking purpose).
