I was following the how to for setting up a secure relay email server.
I got to the part about using netstat to see that my services are running, and this what I see:
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name
tcp 0 0 localhost.localdoma:ipp localhost.localdo:32772 ESTABLISHED 928/cupsd
tcp 0 0 localhost.localdo:32772 localhost.localdoma:ipp ESTABLISHED 1382/eggcups
this doesn't look anything like what it shows in the How To. What have I done wrong? and what is eggcups and cupsd? Have I missed a big step somewhere before I should be trying to start an email server?
I'm not sure what info is needed to figure this out, but here goes:
Operating system is RH Linux ES 3
Server is on a LAN with NAT from the router to the server's LAN IP
I have a static IP which I will be having a domain name registered to later
Webmin 1.50 used on server as well
My Linux experience is virtually nil, with the exception of running a Half-life server in the past. But I'm doing my best to figure this out.
Distribution: OpenBSD 4.6, OS X 10.6.2, CentOS 4 & 5
I don't think you used netstat correctly. On a default install there will be many more ports than that bound. I think the netstat output has been piped to grep and it's looking for only established connections.
