How Do I Portforward on Debain 8?

Postby VultureBeast » 2017-03-08 13:31

Hi, I'm running Debian 8 on a VPS and I'm fairly new to Linux entirely. I need to portforward the port 8085 on my server but I don't know how to do it on Debain and I haven't found any clear instructions online.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated! :D

Regards

How Do I Portforward on Debain 8

I found this one to work for me:
http://www.debiantutorials.com/port-forwarding-with-iptables/

But there are many other results as well.

Then you don't need port forwarding.
If you have set up a firewall, configure it appropriately.
If not, just run your server.
