I'm trying to do a remote install of Acronis Backup on my SLES box. Amongst others, it requires port 9876 to be open.
In YaSt firewall, I've added 9876 to 'Allowed Services' -> Advanced (TCP) and restarted the firewall.
9876 is added to the FW_SERVICES_EXT_UDP variable in /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2.

When I do a port scan of my network for port 9876 using Angry IP Scanner, I can see 9876 open on other nodes, but not on my SLES machine.

If I execute 'iptables -L | grep 9876' it returns nothing.

If I turn off the firewall in YaST, 9876 is still closed to the port scanner.

Any ideas?

Many thanks,

Gary
