I'm trying to add a port to my firewall. I tried running Lokkit over
Xwindows, but it doesn't give me an otion to open a particular port.

So I added the line in my /etc/sysconfig/iptables
-A RH-Lokkit-0-50-INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 4242 --tcp-flags
SYN,RST,ACK SYN -j ACCEPT

Then I /etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables restart

but when I imap IP it doesn't show the port being open.

I tried man iptables, but I have to be honest, I really don't
understand most of it. =(

Could someone give me just a pointer for what to focus on or a part of
the MAN that might help?

Thanks!
