Port 443
The problem is that HTTPS 443 port isn't accessible from interned, but it is open in local network. Our iSeries is connected to inet via L2TP withot IPSec. If no packet filters are active, nmap shows that ports 25, 80, 110 and even 10322 (WAS admin console) have state 'open' on internet ip address. 443 have state 'filtered'. If I activate the following packet rules: # ----------------------------------------------- # Statements to permit inbound HTTP over STATICIP # ----------------------------------------------- INCLUDE FILE = /QIBM/UserData/OS400/TCPIP/PacketRules/Services.i3p FILTER SET HTTP_INBOUND ACTION = PERMIT DIRECTION = OUTBOUND SRCADDR = * DSTADDR = * SERVICE = HTTP_80_FS JRN = OFF FILTER SET HTTP_INBOUND ACTION = PERMIT DIRECTION = INBOUND SRCADDR = * DSTADDR = * SERVICE = HTTP_80_FC JRN = OFF FILTER SET HTTP_INBOUND ACTION = PERMIT DIRECTION = OUTBOUND SRCADDR = * DSTADDR = * SERVICE = HTTP_443_FS JRN = OFF FILTER SET HTTP_INBOUND ACTION = PERMIT DIRECTION = INBOUND SRCADDR = * DSTADDR = * SERVICE = HTTP_443_FC JRN = OFF FILTER_INTERFACE INTERFACE = STATICIP SET = HTTP_INBOUND # ----------------------------------------------- port 80 is 'open', 443 is 'filtered'. How can I make it 'open'? Thank you in advance.

    If you remove the packet rules entirely, does 443 show as 'open'? And does it show 'filtered' again as soon as you reapply the rules? Tom
