I installed teamspeak 3 on freebsd 7 using portinstall. When i do service teamspeak status i see teamspeak is running

but somehow I cannot connect to the server.

did I miss something? I followed this tutorial:

# portinstall teamspeak3-server
added teamspeak_enable="YES" to /etc/rc.conf

Firewall running?? –  Chris S Apr 6 '12 at 13:41
Had a look at /var/log/teamspeak? –  sr_ Apr 6 '12 at 16:18
no error reports at het /var/log/teamspeak firewall might be running but can't find which one it is that might be the problem. –  FLY Apr 10 '12 at 7:12
With service -e you can see which standard services are running. This includes firewalls. –  Roland Smith May 6 '12 at 10:53

By default FreeBSD does not run a firewall.

First use sudo sockstat -4l to check what is listening on IPv4 on your machine - if you do not see your teamspeak service there, then it never started.

If it is running and you still can't connect to it, use sudo service -e to see what services is running - check to see if pf or ipfw is in the list, if they are you are running a firewall.
