I'm just starting out in Ubuntu/Linux, and have some trouble opening port 80 for incoming connections.
I ran the
sudo ufw allow 80/tcp command, and when I run
sudo ufw status the result looks like this:
Status: active To Action From -- ------ ---- 22 ALLOW Anywhere 80/tcp ALLOW Anywhere 22 (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6) 80/tcp (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6)
However, I still get this error when trying to connect to the port with cURL.
Failed to connect to MY_IP_ADDRESS port 80: Connection refused
When I run this command
netstat -ntlp | grep LISTEN to see what ports are open, I get this result:
(No info could be read for "-p": geteuid()=1000 but you should be root.) tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:27017 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN - tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:22 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN - tcp6 0 0 :::22 :::* LISTEN -
Which doesn't look that promising..
How do I open port 80 for incoming connections?
