Question pop3 connection refused error


I am trying to install a pop3 email server, using postfix and qpopper on fc3. I've followed the install stuff as best I can and added port 110 to firewall, yet when I test it via pop3test or telnet to port 110 I get
Trying 127.0.0.1...
telnet: connect to address 127.0.0.1: Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

# iptables -L
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)

not sure where to start trying to track down

thanks for any help

I think that it's not iptables thing. I think you don't have the server started. Check it.

Thanks,

please bear in mind that I am learning lots, but still a NEWBIE. I followed the install directions. Only difference is that I put

pop3 stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/local/bin/popper -s

in xinetd.conf instead of the inetd.conf because using FC3 and it's my understanding that is what you do. I restarted xinetd with 'service xinetd restart' (which seemed to work). I've tried to run it manually with/usr/local/bin/popper -s . prompt just returns, no messages.

If I ps x | grep popper, I get nothing. so not sure if it's running or not (makes be believe that it's not). Sorry if this seems totally idiotic on my part. What can I try?

Thanks,

tony
