NOTE: OMSA will not install on unsupported systems. If you receive a message at install that the system is not supported, it is likely that your system is not supported, and the install will fail. This is most common on SC-class systems, as OMSA is completely unsupported on these systems.
To enable port 1311 you can add the following rules to /etc/sysconfig/iptables on Redhat based systems.
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 1311 -j ACCEPT
Save the file and restart iptables
