Replied in the thread. This may be a limited use case.

This is an SELinux restriction, taking it.

This bug has been verified and fixed. 

Please refer to the details as below:


Verified steps:
1. Create an ruby app
#rhc app create -a ruby19 -t ruby-1.9 -p redhat
2.SSH into the app and check the port 43 status:
[ruby19-joycedev2.dev.rhcloud.com ~]\> irb 
irb(main):001:0> require "socket" 
=> true 
irb(main):002:0> socket = TCPSocket.new("whois.nic.it", 43) 
=> #<TCPSocket:fd 5> 
irb(main):003:0> socket.write ("example.it\r\n") 
=> 12 
irb(main):004:0> response = socket.read 
=> "" 
irb(main):005:0> puts response 

=> nil 

The port 43 is opened be default. 

So mart it as verified. Thanks.
