I simply installed Nginx listening on 8083 I'm able to obtain a HTTP response when delivering a HTTP request in the local machine.


curl -i localhost:8083

However, after i perform the same from the remote machine, it simply dangles before the ssh occasions out, or once the browser occasions out if utilized in the browser.

I virtually possess the default config:

user  apache apache;
worker_processes  1;

error_log  logs/error.log;
#error_log  logs/error.log  notice;
#error_log  logs/error.log  info;

pid        logs/nginx.pid;

events {
    worker_connections  1024;

http {
    include       mime.types;
    default_type  application/octet-stream;

    log_format  main  '$remote_addr - $remote_user [$time_local] "$request" '
                      '$status $body_bytes_sent "$http_referer" '
                      '"$http_user_agent" "$http_x_forwarded_for"';

    access_log  logs/access.log  main;

    sendfile        on;
    tcp_nopush     on;

    #keepalive_timeout  0;
    keepalive_timeout  65;

    #gzip  on;

    server {
        listen       8083;
        server_name  _;

        charset utf-8;

        #access_log  logs/host.access.log  main;

        location / {
            root   html;
            index  index.html index.php;

        #error_page  404              /404.html;

        # redirect server error pages to the static page /50x.html
        error_page   500 502 503 504  /50x.html;
        location = /50x.html {
            root   html;

        location ~ /\.ht {
            deny  all;


any ideas?

Here's what I recieve for iptables -L

# iptables -L
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

Wouldso would I understand whether it were built with a non-distribution firewall installed?

I approached hosting support and there's a hardware firewall outdoors the server stopping the main harbour from being arrived at from remote Insolvency practitioners.
