Hi
I am using linux AS 3 as proxy server. I can not send my mail using proxy due to SMPT port disabled.

How i make my linux box as SMTP server and enable SMTP port ?

Please advice me.

Re: SMTP server

Hello Mohammed,

please check with the command "netstat -tulpen" if a daemon is bound to port 25/tcp. If not, please check die init.d directory for a script called "sendmail", "exim", "postfix" or "qmail". RHEL should normally use sendmail as MTA. So try the command "/etc/init.d/sendmail start". After that you should have a running MTA on you machine. To configure sendmail, check the documentation for it.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
Patrick

Re: SMTP server

Shalom,

See that the iptables firewall configuration ((iptables -L )) permits port 25.

Sendmail is installed by default on this OS.

chkconfig sendmail on

Re: SMTP server

Thanks a lot
I checked but no 25/TCP port enable.
I need to enable SMTP port only.
Please suggest me on this regard

Re: SMTP server

if you start the sendmail daemon, it will open the 25 port.

Also check there is uncomment line in front of 25 port from /etc/services file.
