Thank you sir. I opened port 4321 and it works. There is still a trick, which
took me several hours to find out: 4321 port should be put at the first
position in INPUT chain. If it is appended in INPUT chain, it won't work.

Thanks again for your great help. I appreciate it very much.

Best regards.
 Jie Xu
