1) Identifying whether your CPU is a 64bit or not. Use below command to find it
Our CPU is a 64 bit.
2) Identify whether Jasperserver default port 8080 is open or not? Below command helps you to identify it.
netstat -an | grep 8080| grep LISTEN
If nothing has not returned, then your port 8080 is free to use.
3) Created a folder Helical and Jasperserver under home.
4) Downloaded Jasperserver 30-days trial from here http://www.jaspersoft.com/thanks-download-30-day

You can start the jasperserver in any one of the way sh ctlscript.sh start (or) ./ ctlscript.sh start
Check the Status of the Service:
sh ctlscript.sh status
Once again the check the port number 8080 is engaged or not.
By default jasperserver uses Postgres Database thus from this installation even postgres DB will also be available on Port Number 5432 in your machine. No need to install it explicitly.
Location of Postgres: “/home/Helical/Jasperserver/y/postgresql/bin”
Now you must be able to access the Jasperserver from “ipaddress:8080/jasperserver-pro”. If not able to access it Check whether 8080 is configured to access TCP/IP incoming and outgoing in iptables.
Edit iptables as root user using vi /etc/sysconfig/iptables
Add a rule saying
-A INPUT -p tcp -m state –state NEW -m tcp –dport 8080 -j ACCEPT
Now you must be able to access the Jasperserver.
