is the 25 port closed


Hi every body,
I tried to configure the postfix on suse 9.1 in the same manner that I do it on Mandrake 9.0. On Mandrake the mail runs correctly , but not on suse 9.1.
In fact the problem is in the SMTP.

I use telnet serverMail 25, the answer is Coonexion refused

It works with the 110 port for pop3.

I enable the port in /etc/xinetd.d/smtd file : I put no to disable.


the problem remained, I restart and restart again the xinetd and the postfix, same problem. I have exacly the same file on mandrake !!!!!!!???

Perhaps the port is blocked somewhere ??? how to activate it if any


I also installed the Dns in the same machine which runs correctly.


thanks for help
bela
bye

Prolly easiest to just call your ISP and ask them if they are blocking it. Much simpler than trying to prove it to yourself by testing.

Is there a special reason you are running postfix from xinetd?

It is designed to run itself as a daemon..

Try turning xinetd off and connect to it..

thanks
I run it as a daemon, but I don't see it in the list with ps aux command
I notice that in the readme the doc says : copy files

I need a precise answer for this : Howto open a port
I don't why complicates the access ??!!
this is from documentation


README.SuSE
(vinil@suse.cz 12.6.00, based on choeger@suse.de 2.6.98)


Please, copy:

/etc/resolv.conf
/usr/lib/zoneinfo/localtime
/lib/libnss_dns.so.2
/lib/libnss_files.so.2
/etc/nsswitch.conf
/etc/host.conf

to their equivalent in /var/spool/smtpd.
(If you do the dns lookup non-ordinary way, copy other necessary files.)

Strange this is special to Suse !!!!

I change content of the files to allow ereybody

expl166:/var/spool/smtpd # cat etc/smtpd_check_rules
#
# Example smtpd_check_rules file.
# Carsten Hoeger <choeger@suse.de> S.u.S.E. Gmbh, Fuerth, Germany 1998
#
allow:localhost:ALL:ALL

# Access to all members of domain suse.de
allow:ALL:ALL:ALL

# deny all other
#deny:ALL:ALL:ALL




For further information, read INSTALL.

That documentation describes running postfix in a root jail, chrooted..

This may be a SuSe specific script, which I don't have experience with..

However, take a look at the postfix logfile, prob /var/log/postfix/postfix.log

Hi,
thank to all.
I solved , partially the problem,
I think this is a bug,

The program /usr/sbin/smtpd is declared as root:root no permission for other
-r-x------ 1 root root 47001 Apr 6 02:21 /usr/sbin/smtpd

so the xinetd ( or another process ) couldon't runs it !!!!!!
it was declared beloging to xientd.

To fix the problem , run it a daemon /usr/sbin/smtpd -D
uucp 5225 0.0 0.1 1464 520 ? Ss 14:13 0:00 /usr/sbin/smtpd -D

but there is another program in postfix

/usr/lib/postfix/smtpd

Now I have to run it automatically,

thanks again
bye
bela
