I'm trying to get IMAP (dovecot) working for remote IMAP connection to another computer on my network. Currently Sendmail is working great, squirrelmail is working great, and IMAP on local is working fine. I'm running Linux Fedora Core 2, with Sendmail, Dovecot, and Saslauthd, spamassassin.
when I try to connect to the linux server from WinderzXP machine, set up to run IMAP through Netscape. server is mail.XXXXXXX.net. DNS is working properly, and winderz machine has no problems connecting- but will not authenticate.
Jun 24 20:33:39 homer dovecot(pam_unix): authentication failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty= ruser= rhost= user=john
I have no problems logging in with Squirrelmail or on the local machine with Netscape. All problems occur when I move myself physically to the winderz computer, and try to connect remotely. No problems with Squirrelmail connecting remotely either.
Thanks in advance if anybody is able to help.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
