I'm trying to help Sunny to connect from Linux to a serial port on a Moxa box.  It is not working, and I am stumped, so any ideas are welcome.

 From Windows he can telnet to it:

> when I telnet from windows
> telnet 192.168.127.254 4001
> It prompts a blank screen and for other IP or ports like 192.168.127.254 5064, 192.168.127.34 4732 etc. it simply says host not available so I think port 4001 should be good.

When he connects it to Linux he can ping it:

ping 192.168.127.254
PING 192.168.127.254 (192.168.127.254) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 192.168.127.254<http://192.168.127.254>: icmp_seq=1 ttl=255 time=1.69 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.127.254<http://192.168.127.254>: icmp_seq=2 ttl=255 time=0.797 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.127.254<http://192.168.127.254>: icmp_seq=3 ttl=255 time=0.753 ms

ifconfig looks OK:

          inet addr:192.168.127.0  Bcast:192.168.127.255  Mask:255.255.255.0

          RX bytes:1454 (1.4 Kb)  TX bytes:10799 (10.5 Kb)

arp looks good:
sbin/arp

The firewall is disabled:
 systemctl status SuSEfirewall2.service

SuSEfirewall2 phase 2
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/SuSEfirewall2.service; disabled)
   Active: inactive (dead)

But when he tries to telnet from the Linux box it times out:

telnet 192.168.127.254 4001
Trying 192.168.127.254...
telnet: connect to address 192.168.127.254<http://192.168.127.254>: Connection timed out

Any ideas what could be causing this?

Thanks,
Mark
