Question

Can't open custom port (8079, 8088, 8082 etc.)

Can’t open port for my docker container. I started docker by:

docker run -p 8079:8080 -p 50000:50000 -d jenkins

After this i added rule for ufw:

ufw status
Status: active

To                         Action      From

8079 (v6)                  ALLOW       Anywhere (v6)             

8079/tcp                   ALLOW OUT   Anywhere                  
8079/tcp (v6)              ALLOW OUT   Anywhere (v6)  

The result of nmap is:

nmap -sS -O 178.62.88.56

Also, I tried:

iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 8079 -j ACCEPT

but with no success.

The netstat response is:

netstat -plutn Active Internet connections (only servers) Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:22 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 1514/sshd

How can I fix this problem?

I have the same problem, cannot open custom port such as 8081 8082 etc

Hey! I wasn’t notified of your reply, sorry :(

You don’t seem to have a TCP port problem by your last output.

The 403 Forbidden is generated by your app! It seems a directory permission problem!

Thank you, but this isn’t the trick… I tried and again with no success/

Well, it seems port 50000 is blocked by ufw, since port 8079 is allowed by the fourth ufw rule in your list. I would try a sudo ufw allow 50000.
