I try to open port 81 as a virtualhost. after setting apache, I can CURL localhost:81 from local machine and get response(yes it was listening port 81). However, when visit the same address from remote browser, browser always show TIME OUT error.
I thought it might be due to firewall or selinux, so I disable both of them and try again but still failed. The commands I used to disable selinux and firewall are as below:
to disable selinux:
open /etc/selinux/config and change SELINUX=disabled and then reboot. I use sestatus command to check and output shows it was disabled.
to close iptables:
service iptables stop chkconfig iptables off
and I close ip6tables either:
service ip6tables stop chkconfig ip6tables off
I am using CentOS 6.3. Are there other security issues besides selinux and iptables that I didn't notice?
Add more information
I use IP address directly, like 126.96.36.199:81. I don't think it is due to apache conf since I can get response from local server machine through both
curl locahlost:81 and
after running netstat command, I got the
tcp 0 0 :::80 :::* LISTEN 1809/httpd tcp 0 0 :::81 :::* LISTEN 1809/httpd
seems both 80 and 81 are working.
here is the
ifconfig -a result:
