I have a https jenkins server running on https on port 1444. I set the iptable rules but it does not work as expected.

Posted January 25, 2021 349 views

I set the following iptable rules:

  1. iptables -A INPUT -p tcp –dport 22 -m conntrack –ctstate NEW,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT # Since I want to allow ssh from anywhere into the host that hosts the jenkins server
  2. iptables -A INPUT -p tcp –dport 1444 -m conntrack –ctstate NEW,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT #Since the jenkins server runs on port 1444. Note: The server is https
  3. iptables -A INPUT -j DROP #I want all other traffic other than ssh and https to be dropped

Is there something wrong I am doing while setting the rules? Please help

Hi @ksd17,

The rules look okay however I do have a question, how are you trying to access the application? Are you using a port or just typing in the domain name IE.


The second command should work, while the first one shouldn’t unless you’ve configured some kind of a reverse proxy, maybe with Nginx.
