    Port-listening Issues


    Hi all. I'm experiencing issues with an application that employs sockets to listen for input on a port (the particular application is SocketMud, written in C). When I attempt to run the program on a port above 1024, it hangs and will not display any sort of message. Attempts to connect to the mud on localhost through telnet on another terminal are unsuccessful. I modified /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_range with no results. I installed netcat and did a 'nc -l 3000' with no success, so the problem isn't the application I was using. I disabled the Windows Firewall (I'm running Arch inside VmWare), but nothing happened. I'm quite new to Linux, so I could be missing something obvious. Is there anything I am overlooking?
