List, Guys and Girls, although i know this is not a specific freebsd issue, i will ask the question nevertheless.
normally, i sent my outgoing email through my isp ( relay.x.z ). this server seems to be down at the moment. so after working with bsd for years, i decided to dive into sendmail. i read a lot, setup the stuff and tested sh*t. so basically, it seems to work fine: i can send messages between machines on the LAN, but messages to the outside(gmail, other domains) timeout. i ran tcpdump on the external interface, and the only thing that seems to happen is my machine contacting the other machines, but they never reply!: 22:24:25.763774 x.y.z.4091 > gsmtp183.google.com.smtp: S 1796563309:1796563309(0) win 57344 <mss 1460> (DF) how come? how do i find out? i checked /var/log/security and stuff is not being blocked by ipfw. sendmail reports: stat=Deferred: Operation timed out with gsmtp163.google.com. i have masqueraded(sendmail) with my isp-assigned-domain-name ( ipXXzYYY.provider.country ), and with another domain i own. am i missing something obvious? thanks in advance for any help, regards, usleep _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
