For the default installation with iptables enabled, all the rules are 
in /etc/sysconfig/iptables; you need to edit this file with the rule you need 
above the reject line and with the right chain name.  Once you edit this 
file, do a 'service iptables restart' to make it active.

If it still doesn't work, check /var/log/messages to see if SELinux is denying 
the socket open for listening.
