Unable to connect to remote host on port 8080
I am having the following problem:
I have an application which wants to connect to my server on the port 8080, but this port is somehow unaccessible.
Trying with telnet I get:
telnet XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX 8080
telnet: connect to address XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX: Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host
If I try the same on port 80 it works.
Therefore I tried to open it adding some rules on the iptables, but this didn't solve it.
I read somewhere else that the problem might be that there is no listener on my server on that port. Do you know what can I do to create a listener? I couldn't find anything that could help me.
Thank you for your help!
