Aah, thanks!! I thought of this myself too after I noticed that the above line didn't work either. The port 2000 that the process tries to connect to is, I think, the Sieve port. I am not running Sieve which would explain the situation. Well, it seems that the firewall is working properly after all which is the most important thing. > > Ruben -- Johan _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
