Default pop3 service alone is failed in "The Perfect Setup - Debian Sarge (3.1)"

Hi Falko,

This time I tried Debian Sarge 3.1 instructions on my Kanotix RC-11 version.

Everything went fine not even a single error. Also I omitted Courier section.

After installing ISPConfig and logged in as admin. I selected the Services section and found the following:-

Web-Server: Online
FTP-Server: Online
SMTP-Server: Online
POP3-Server: Offline
BIND-Server: Online
mySQL-Server: Online

and my nmap on localhost shows the following, i could not see any 110 port in it. Could you please tell me what might have gone wrong and how can I now get the Pop3 service running, which in the above ISPConfig would change from Offline to Online.

Please see my nmap output below:-

root@aasai:~# nmap localhost

Starting nmap 3.93 ( ) at 2005-10-22 20:45 BST
Interesting ports on localhost.localdomain (
(The 1659 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: closed)
21/tcp   open  ftp
25/tcp   open  smtp
53/tcp   open  domain
80/tcp   open  http
81/tcp   open  hosts2-ns
443/tcp  open  https
631/tcp  open  ipp
953/tcp  open  rndc
3306/tcp open  mysql

Nmap finished: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 0.218 seconds
Please help me to get this one right.

Many thanks for your excellent article.
