so i set out to change the default smtp port the server uses because my ISP blocks port 25 and i need the email to work in outlook. this morning i could receive email, but not send it. so i did some research and thought that i needed to edit the master.cf file in /etc/postfix/ by commenting out this line: smtp inet n - n - - smtpd -oand replace it with587 inet n - n - - smtpd (587 being the port i want to use)somewhere along the lines postfix server stopped running and now i cannot get it to start.if i try using SSH it crashes immediately and if i restart it in simple control panel nothing happens
I need to setup a mail server, purely for relaying mail to a MS exchange server. A previous employee used Postfix on CentOS. I have limited Linux knowledge and no experience with any mail server software other than MS Exchange, so we cannot continue with this solution (unless I can find a way of managing it all from a gui). Does anyone know of an MTA that can be configured completely by GUI? Everyone says sendmail has millions of features and loads of documentation, but I simply do not have the time to learn it. I need something that can be configured with minimal knowledge and via GUI, not command line. The only reason I'm not using Exchange is to try to save money, and hopefully it will be more secure.
It seems my sendmail (running in slackware 13.0) cannot send out emails correctly. I guess I need to tell it what is the smtp server to use. And, I heard, gmail's smtp server is available to use for this purpose. How to configure my sendmail this way?
I'm trying to set up a basic smtp server on my local computer that I can send basic, unencrypted email through on port 25. I installed postfix, and I chose the following options:
Internet Site, System Mail Name: localhost Root and postmaster mail recipient: I left this blank For other domains to accept mail, I entered : NONE, localhost No force synchronous mail updates Local networks: 127.0.0.0/8
VERY new to linux, erm but I have an issue that needs solving!I recently moved to university, where their network blocks sftp port 22, this means that I cannot connect to my FTP server which is running a version of linux.Now I've got this ftp server connected to a seedbox and it was created using the following walk through..Code:I have written this guide for a friend, but I though it would be useful for others as well.
There are several guides floating around, but I found that most always cock up in some way. This one is tried and tested to work on Debian Etch (on an OVH rps, but should apply to most servers).If there is a new stable release of rtorrent/libtorrent then I will update this guide to show you how to update it (without reinstalling the whole server).
At the bottom there are also instructions to install ftp access & some network monitoring software.Basically, I would really like someone to be able to construct the commands on how to change the listen port for sftp connection on linux or add another port to the list that Linux would use so that I could put in through putty.
I have sendmail running on my centOS 4.6. My lamp server also runs on it. I want to send mail through php mail function. when i execute php page, which fires the mail function, it takes so much long tim1 say even 1 minute, and at last displays that message sent successfully. Suppose, destination address is [URL].... I did not get any mail there. My server is running in LAN. I checked the status of sendmail, it shows me that it ios running. when i issue "nmap localhost" it shows me that SMTP port 25 is open, but when i issue "nmap myserver" (192.168.1.20 myserver ( written in hostfile)), it does not show that SMTP port is open.
I checked the /var/log/maillog, one person in my previous post advice me to see that. There it shows that message is accepted for delivery...but i do not get any mail in my destination, even not in spam folder. One more confusion is that, in my case my server is in LAN and if I am at all enable to open the SMTP port on it, does i need to open SMTP port on my router (which connects my LAN to internet) also needs to open? I think no, because SMTP is application layer protocol, it will wrap my mail in IP packet, which router just need to forward. am i right?
I have 4 VMs on a Linux host, call them A, B, C, D running on Z. I really don't care when A and B come up, but I would like to make sure that D comes up before C.I believe that in VMWare 2.x it's possible to change the boot order. Is this possible in 1.x as well? Is this done in /etc/vmware/vm-list? I see that there are a number of VMs listed there, including some that have long since been deleted.
In order to have greater control over the emails sent out the company I imagined the following scenario.ScenarioDescribing in words what I need.ser sends an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for example, using the smtp of my isp (is the internet).Before the email is sent, the firewall checks if the recipient is blocked transparent, if you are locked out rejects the email.I searched several forums and mailing lists, but did not find scenarios similar to mine.Where found situations in which the mail servers were internally in the company, which is not my case.
I am trying to make my home server accessible to the whole web. I have installed Nginx on my Fedora 15 64-bit Linux machine, and it works with localhost but it doesn't work online or allow other computers on the network to access it via the IP address. It keeps coming back with: Could not connect
I have port forwarding. I have even tried different ports but they all seem to be blocked. What could be wrong? I have a netgear router.
I have a server set up with a VPN (openVPN with DynDNS). My emails are located there and I can check them from home, office, where ever really, with different computers, no problem.However, due to restrictions of some ISPs I would have to change the SMTP server used, depending on where I am with my laptop.
Now, I thought about using the VPN to also tunnel the SMTP traffic through that. But how am I doing that?So far, when I'm connected to via VPN I simply have a local (from the server point of view) IP address to connect to my IMAP server. But how can I route the SMTP port 25 through the VPN?Is that possible to do, also in a way that I don't have to change anything depending on where I am, as in within the network of the server or outside? Since when I'm within the network the VPN obviously isn't connecting..
I'm new to iptable configuration. I've set up a VPN using DD-WRT on my router and it works fine. However the VPN company does not allow port 25 traffic (in case of spammers) so now I can't get my emails sent out.
I'm guessing I can add some rules to my iptable so that all traffic except port 25 traffic can go out through the VPN tunnel. And hopefully, all port 25 traffic will go out through the normal Internet connection.code...
I wish to use the VNC server built in to the Ubuntu to easily access it from other computers on my local network. I need to skew the VNC Server port off of the normal 5900 to something else because I am using VNC to access several computers (sometimes simultaneously) so each VNC server needs to be set with a different port #. At this point it is all local subnet connections with no incoming internet access and I am not worried about security.
I want to change my ssh port from the default 22 to something else. I did the following: vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config; uncommented Port 22 and changed it to the desired port number. After that I run service sshd restart for the change to take an effect. Now, when I want to login into the new port I receive this message - Network error:Unable to route to host. When I change the port back to 22, I will be able to login again.
The server I'm running is virtually stock CentOS - it's running on a xen virtual host, started as CentOS 5.1 (32 bit) when that was fresh, it's at 5.5 now and updated nightly. All packages except postgresql and php are from CentOS and EPEL.
I'm running dovecot on it, and for long time, squirrelmail connecting via localhost was good enough. All external ports were firewalled by the CentOS firewall (just 25,80,443,custom ssh are currently open).
Now I need to allow an external imap client to connect.
I have generated ssl key and configured the dovecot configuration and it should be good to go, but gosh dangit, I can't remember how to open the port in the configuration.
I did it before when I set up ssh to run on a non standard port after I got sick of constant brute force attack on port 22, but I can't recall what I did and the various tutorials I find online all tell how to do it with the GUI tool, but I don't have any GUI stuff installed.
Is I'm pretty sure what I used to open up my custom > 1024 ssh port, but I can't remember how I used it to open that port and it doesn't seem intuitive. Also, do I need to use 993? I'd almost rather use something custom above 1024, as long as thunderbird supports it (don't care about any other mail client)
Finally, my smtp server is postfix and port 25 is already open (but not an open relay, I check it about every 3 months). For requests to send mail from a client, I would really like some authentication of some type - as in only relays for IP addresses that have recently successfully logged in the secure imap port.
configuring my postfix server to send mail over smtps port 465. My ISP (as is the case with many ISPs), is blocking outbound SMTP, so I need to configure postfix to relay my mail out through my ISPs SMTP servers.
I was able to get it to work with gmail, which uses port 587, by using SASL: [URL] but that configuration is less than ideal as gmail drops the "reply to" address so when people receive my email, it looks like it's from gmail instead of from my server.
If I use my ISP SMTP servers as a relay the "reply to" address is not stripped, but the relay uses ssl over port 465 instead of TLS. According to the SASL readme:
Postfix does not deliver mail via TCP port 465 (the obsolete "wrappermode" protocol). See TLS_README for a solution that uses the "stunnel" command.
I've looked at the TLS_README and can't figure out what I need to do. how to configure this?
