I have a bit of strange problem and I'm nearly at my witts end as to what the cause of the problem is.
Basically I installed a 5.2-RELEASE box and setup my new mailserver. Then used portupgrade to upgrade any newer versions of software installed. I then cvsup'ed to 5.2.1-p4 and now things aren't working too well. mx2# telnet 0 25 Trying 0.0.0.0... Connected to 0. Escape character is '^]'. 220 mx2 ESMTP Exim 4.30 Wed, 31 Mar 2004 14:27:14 +1000 421 mx2 lost input connection Connection closed by foreign host. I always get this "connection closed" business before I can send any commands through! The problem is that everything works on my desktop, which is a 5.2.1-p4/exim 4.30 combo - thus proving everything should work fine. The only real differences I guess are in the hardware. The new mailserver is an SMP box whilst my box is just a standard desktop. I've tried the following to no avail: * portupgrade -Rf exim * make kernel (use GENERIC) * make kernel (use GENERIC but no smp) * build/installworld then portupgrade -Rf exim Everything was working fine but now it's pooched! I'm not sure what to try next as I had this box all setup ready to be dropped into production and then this issue arose! Every other part of the box works fine - ssh, courier-imap, ldap etc etc.. But not being able to receive mail is quite a fundamental problem! Any thoughts on what to try next would be appreciated. System rebuild isn't high on the agenda!! ;) Thanks, ajt. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
