RE: Could not open connection to the host, on port 143



I recycled the machine. Now, "iptables -L" is showing perfect output. And I am able to telnet at 143.

Thank you all for the kind help. :-)

iptables v1.2.4: can't initialize iptables table `filter': iptables who? (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

Looks like something is wrong. Should I install something again?

is firewall enabled? To see it: iptables -L

if is it, you can disable it with: service iptables stop

and disable start at boot: chkconfig iptables off

Atte.
