Well, is port 110 open?
What is the output from
Code:
telnet 202.137.236.11 110
What happens if you disable the firewall?

Kind regards

I have no problem connecting to the mail server
Code:
repo@cannabis ~]$ telnet 202.137.236.11 110
Trying 202.137.236.11...
Connected to 202.137.236.11.
Escape character is '^]'.
+OK <52810.1304098629@pop.rediffmailpro.com>
quit
+OK 
Connection closed by foreign host.
repo@cannabis ~]$
From where are you connecting to what server?
Code:
i can't fetchmail form my company server to local pc.it gives error
Are they in the same local network, or are you connecting to the outside (your home pc)
Where is dovecat running?

Kind regards

Just kill the tcpserver, and let him listen on another port.

Kind regards

This means it's working.
The server is accepting connections on port 110
