thanks for the reply Chad..let me update since my last post..I scratched the Perfect Setup for Debian Etch and reinstalled with just the standard system. I installed postfix and the libsasl2 modules. I've added the necessary lines to /etc/postfix/main.cf
to allow my to use earthlink as my relayhost.
smtp_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtp_sasl_password_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/sasl_passwd
relayhost = [smtpauth.earthlink.net]
I created /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd and added:
I ran chown root:root /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd && chmod 600 /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd and postmap /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd.
So that pretty much takes care of the MTA right?
My Dlink router finally died on me yesterday(got 7yrs out of 30$ purchase
and a opened ports 25 and 110 on my new netgear router. I can telnet from my windows box to 25 but not 110 which I think is because I have no POP3 daemon running right?
Heres my questions I need to install POP3d right? Also I've only tried nmap with linux, what should I setup on my windoze box the command line or the Zenmap? I forgotten the command in nmap to check open ports can you post that please? At the moment hosts.allow is empty and .deny is commented #paranoid
thanks again for your help
