Re: [suse-security] Sendmail / SuSEfirewall2 Woes
1. in /etc/sysconfig/mail set the directive
SMTPD_LISTEN_REMOTE="yes"
then run SuSEconfig
and rcsendmail restart

2. DON'T USE SENDMAIL, IT'S VERY BUGGY :)

Subject: [suse-security] Sendmail / SuSEfirewall2 Woes


Greetings all,

We are configuring a sendmail relay server and are having some problems.
Sendmail was all setup and working nicely, until I came along to install and
configure SuSEfirewall2. Even with the firewall shutdown, sendmail fails to
respond to remote connections. Actually, the banner appears, but sendmail
won't respond to a helo or any other SMTP commands. When attempted locally,
this works fine. Again, this is with the firewall shutdown (SuSEfirewall2
stop). The same symptoms occur with the firewall loaded.

Any ideas on what I should be looking for?

TIA,

Grant
