### Issue installing Bitmessage

Hi all,

After going through this thread openclose-port-on-fedora-25-server/ and applying this

firewall-cmd --permanent --add-port=7777/tcp


and checking in the Terminal it is Enabled, but when checking on grc.com 'shields up' the port is closed and this is evident when using the program that requires the port to be open.

Can you help me in getting the port Open?

Thank you
