HELP: Linux telnet smtp server fails, Works from MS Windows
Date: 22 Jul 2003 19:30:29 -0700
I'm stumped. And I'm not a guru.
I think I have a network setup problem on my Linux box, but I'm not
sure what to look for.
Trying to get sendmail working. On linux box, cannot telnet to my
ISP's smtp server.
What I've tried:
>From linux box: telnet my-isp-smtp-server 25
I get: telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
I can ping it fine though.
>From my windows box, when I try the same telnet, it works fine and I
can do a manual email out, and it gets delivered fine.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've been working on it for a
few evenings now, and I'm out of ideas.
Here's my network setup, just in case:
RoadRunner cable modem --> wireless router --> linux box & windows
Now, my linux box does NOT use dhcp, it has a fixed 192.168.x.x
My windows box DOES use dhcp. The wireless router is the dhcp server
