See! Google is unreliable for giving the right answers.
Thanks. I tried the command and it returned no output. That means the firewall
is not open on any port, I presume.
Why would that be? I unchecked and rechecked ssh as a trusted serive and then
applied the changes numerous times already. And it the firewall setup program
doesn't work, how am I supposed to open the port?
