Opening a port to an application accessible outside of localhost?
I’ve seen this question asked a million times before, but I’ve never seen a satisfactory answer. “All ports are open by default.” is not helpful.
* Running on http://127.0.0.1:5000/ (Press CTRL+C to quit)
lsof -i :5000 yields
COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE NAME python 11824 root 3u IPv4 10213572 0t0 TCP localhost:5000 (LISTEN)
But it doesn’t work. I have this working on localhost, but it just won’t work over the internet.
http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/ shows that the port is closed.
Does anyone have any advice?
