    Incoming ports


    as root, any incoming port that a program might be listening is connectable, but a regular user can't receive any connections. iptables are off ssince there's already 2 firewalls filtering garbage. How can i make regular users able to receive incoming transmissions? did i forgot to include the user in a group?

    I am not sure if it is good solution, but if you have some program which you want users to use you can set s bit, i mean chmod +s yourprogram
