    How is it possible to open port 43 as to do whois requests.
    I try to modify firewall in plesk, but have always errors.

    I have 2 firewall in my plesk manager :
    - one under module
    - one under virtuozzo

    I can modify the virtuozzo firewall (but no effect, always fsockopen error on port 43)
