I attempted to open up a port on my VPS, but I can't connect to my website after opening up that port. Below are the commands I issued to open the port. I didn't get an error or anything after setting this up. I just can't connect to my website after doing this.

[[email protected] ~]# iptables -F
[[email protected] ~]# iptables -A INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT
[[email protected] ~]# iptables -A INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
[[email protected] ~]# iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 25765 -j ACCEPT
[[email protected] ~]# iptables -P INPUT DROP
[[email protected] ~]# iptables -P FORWARD DROP
[[email protected] ~]# iptables -P OUTPUT ACCEPT
[[email protected] ~]# iptables -L -v

Just a side note, but I am running CentOS 6 (64 bit)

Thank you in advance.
