I have been setting up a server..and i like to make sure everything works before the next step. I am following the tutorial listed below:
The Perfect Server - Ubuntu Hardy Heron (Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Server)
i do everything to the T, and i can't telnet to localhost...or atleast telneting into it from localhost, domain (beast.gateway.2wire.net) which lets my router resolve i guess. and telnetting from another computer...
they can all connect..but i don't get any msgs back. like the how-to did:
root@server1:/etc/postfix/ssl# telnet localhost 25
Connected to localhost.localdomain.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 server1.example.com ESMTP Postfix (Ubuntu)
250-AUTH LOGIN PLAIN
221 2.0.0 Bye
Connection closed by foreign host.
is what it SHOULD do, and i checked the post-fix site upon finding this thread..
i have a basic understanding of linux, have used on and off for years, finally committing myself to it, with that said. i don't know what would be useful for me to post, so ask and you shall receive.
