Port Filtering

Add me to skype so I can take a look at this.

I used Wireshark to track the packet leaving the VPS, and used pcap to capture on the other server, the packet leaves successfully, and arrives at the other server, then a packet leaves the other server but never arrives at the VPS.
I tried disabling the firewall on the VPS, even though these is an exception in the firewall.
And mitigation is an auto as by default, I have also added the IP of the other server to the whitelist for the firewall in the OVH manager as suggested by OVH technical support.

This is less of a problem now, as I was able to reroute everything though port 450, but still wondering why 445 isn't working.

Have you tried checking traffic with tcpdump or wireshark?

All ports are open by default with OVH so you shouldn't be affected unless you have permanent mitigation on, but even so I wouldn't expect it to be filtering legitimate traffic. Are you sure the ports not blocked on the firewall in your VPS itself?

I was just wondering if anyone knows if OVH filters out packets destined for port 445. As I have a service that runs its API over port 445, when I change the API port to something else eg 450 it works fine, just not 445, I can access the API on port 445 from other devices just not the OVH VPS.
