    All output is accepted.

    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 20348 -j ACCEPT

    iptables works in 'chains'

    If there is a statement above that rule that would drop a packet, such as 'reject all' or similar default iptables rule, the packet would be dropped before it made it to your rule.
    The solution to this is to use iptables -I INPUT
    -I = insert
    -A = append (to the end).
