I am a real newbie to linux and thus pose the following problem!!
I have installed Red Hat 7.2 and am trying to get the pop mail server running correctly.
I have installed the package and it does work however....
When a client tries to connect it times out. If I telnet to the port it sits there for about 40 seconds and then eventually answers.
Why would it be taking so long for xinetd to start the service?
How can I get the service to stay started?
When I try to start the service using 'service ipop3 start' I get the message 'ipop3: unrecognized service'. The service does show up under the X service manager however I can't do anythign with it there. I have added the pop3 script to /etc/xinetd.d but still no luck.
Any help would be great
