Configuring smtp to listen in all ips?


I have a RH7.3 box.

I have one NIC with 2 ip addrs. I have SMTP service running but only accesible thru localhost (
How can I have the service listening in all ips of my box?

(The smtp service is the one that came as default in my distribution)

I assume you are using sendmail. Just "dnl" the line containing the loopback address "" in /etc/mail/ then remake your config files:
make -C /etc/mail
