one thing that I learned was to make sure when you start opening ports (IE you have DENY ALL as default) that you start with the lowest port number.. I for the life of me could not get SMTP working, so I moved it from the bottom of my IPFW rules to the top, and walla it worked. If you would like I can post my IPFW rules. They are extemly simple for my SSH, POP3, SMTP, NTP, IMAP, BIND8 setup... _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
