I like to play Minetest (open minecraft alternativ), but I have idea how to make it possible allow connection if my computer works as a server.

Deactivate firewall works, but that couldn't be a good way.

It works, thanks. But is there an reason to use system-config-firewall instead of firewall config (I tested this an it work also)?

The procedure will be probably similar to minecraft. According to you need to open incoming traffic on port 25565 for minecraft and according to and 30000 port for minetest.

First systemctl stop firewalld.service on the server and start a connection from a client. On the server make sure the connection uses port 30000 with netstat -ntlp | grep 30000.

Then open the port on the server using firewall-config then "Zones->public->Ports->Add"

Note that minetest mentions both tcp and udp ports (netstat -nulp | grep 30000), so you may need to open also for udp

The citation on how to open a port is a bit dated - pre-firewalld - can you update your answer?

With the recent Fedora's firewall-config this will be probably "Zones->public->Ports->Add"
