    Thx soo much, very userful and working fine but i modify myself the iptable line from:
    -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state –state NEW -m tcp -p tcp –dport 1311 -j ACCEPT
    too:
    -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state -–state NEW -m tcp -p tcp -–dport 1311 -j ACCEPT

    basically, im add other “-” ar state and dport because all the other line in the file are the same.

    Thx, again.

      Hello Euphoria,
      
      thx a lot for your comment. Changed the code in my post be encapsulated 
      in < pre > tags rather than < div style = "....  
      
      Wordpress interprets the double minus as a long dash if you use 
      something other than < pre >.
      
      BTW sorry for the late response. I was AFK for 2 Weeks.
