Linux Dedicated Server: Listening port not opening


Recommended Posts

I've been having a super awesome issue with setting up a dedicated Avorion server on Ubuntu 20.04. Simply put, the server does not open the primary listening port. I've hosted many different kinds of servers in the past. To the best of my knowledge the Avorion server has everything it would need to be a happy little server. I only have a problem with the listening port. Everything else seems to work. The ports for steam, RCON, and internal query are working perfectly. When I run the server the terminal output confirms the server has loaded everything in the config file. My favorite part of this whole issue is the terminal output shows the server is using the listening port in the config, but when I print a list of active ports on the system the output reveals the port is not open😂.

I forgot to mention it above, but my firewall is setup for the ports.

I hope my tone is well received. I'm not mad or anything. I just wanna have a friendly discussion.

I have no idea what my problem is. Hopefully somebody has an idea. I'll upload some terminal output down below. You can request additional terminal output if you want.

I lied, some of the terminal output will just be pasted instead of uploading screenshots.
