Server connection timed out - debian

    Brad - 2012-07-08

    Hey guys,
    Setting up mumble on my Debian Lenny server. Installed it via

    apt-get install mumble-server

    and then I ran

    dpkg-reconfigure mumble-server

    to set it up correctly.

    I (think) I then setup the iptables correctly.

    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 64738 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A INPUT -p udp --dport 64738 -j ACCEPT

    To check if it had bound to the ports and was running I did

    netstat -tuapn | grep 64738

    which returned

    tcp 0 0 LISTEN 11541/murmurd
    udp 0 0

    I was then however unable to connect to it via my computer (server and my own
    computer are not on the same network). Mumble would tell me

    Connecting to server XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX.
    Server connection failed: Connection timed out.

    So I went back and checked the log,

    <W>2012-07-08 22:24:56.323 Initializing settings from /etc/mumble-server.ini
    (basepath /etc)
    <W>2012-07-08 22:24:56.323 Binding to address XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX

    <W>2012-07-08 22:24:56.575 1 => Not registering server as public

    Any idea what I can do/check from here?

    Turns out I needed to do,

    iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 64738 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -I INPUT -p udp --dport 64738 -j ACCEPT
