Test postfix configuration remotely.


hi

i installed postfix on a server and configured main.cf file for domainname.

i am doing telnet using command #telnet 192.168.1.4 25

i am getting message connected to 192.168.1.4.

escape character is ^].

if i presed ctrl + ]. i am getting telnet> prompt

but i am expecting server connection to smtp. i.e

220 RHEL6KSTest1.dev.com ESMTP Postfix
EHLO hostname
250-rh.dev.com
250-PIPELINING
250-SIZE 10240000
250-VRFY

note: i am not getting above after escapeter character.
the above is copied from tutorial. so i am not getting above after

escape character. i am getting telnet> prompt

i suspect i am missing something.

Regards.

I'm sure there are a gazillion tutorials for interacting with a smtp server manually.. you won't get anything after pressing the escape sequence because you would then be disconnected from the server. After connecting try typing:
Code:
helo <client_ip>
.. where <client_ip> is the address you are connecting from.
