Question Mail problems on wireless network


Hi,

I have set up a wireless network with a Linksys router ( BEFW11S4 ) and a WPC11 (Ver 3) PCMCIA card in a HP NX9010 laptop with Suse 9. Everything seems fine, although I have to manually add the defalt gateway each time I am not connected to my wired network (eth0 is the built in network interface ) to get out to the internet ( also added my providers DNS entries so DNS works ). I can now get web access to the internet and use Evolution to download my mail. However, I can't send mail.

Any ideas.? I can send and receive mail when I am connected via wire.

Thanks

Jay

What errors do you get in Evolution when you try to send mail? Could you post them.

This sounds like a firewall issue. Do you have one running, either on your Linux machine, or a router?

Probably

My Linksys router may be doing some firewalling ?? I haven't set anything up specifically.

I would investigate the router configuration. I don't know what "defaults" you may have. The error message indicates the port 25 is blocked. You should have some documentation for the router. Usually you point your web browser to teh routers internal IP address, and log into it. It is probably menu driven and shuldn't be too hard to navigate.

Have a look and post back.
