Exclamation Sendmail refusing connections RH7.2


Ok total newbie question...

I have Redhat 7.2 running and sendmail started but it willnot accept a remote connection on TCP 25. It just closes it right away...any idea where to look?

I can SSH in fine, and enabling telnet gets that to work also...

im stumped

The newer RedHat's are setup to only listen on localhost. This question is asked quite often. You may want to do a search for the answer.
