    Hi there - I was following the assp tutorial, and all seems to have gone well, with the exception of my port 25.

    Now as the tutorial suggests, you configure postfix to listen on and the assp on p.ub.l.ic:25.

    So what I did was change my for postfix - inet_interfaces to localhost, then edited the to have the entry.

    Once I restart postfix and start assp, i then ran

    # netstat -tupl

    To check for my listening ports.... I can see my localhost smtp, however nothing for my public ip:25

    IS there a setting somewhere for assp to bind it to a particular IP or interface? I am assuming the port 25 is being glommed by postfix. I know I could change the port for postfix, etc, however I would prefer to work with 25 as the tutorial suggested.

    Also how will assp effect my smtp auth and my postfix fore relaying outbound email?

    Have you logged into ASSP on port 55555 with your webbrowser and changed the settings that it listens only to port 25 on your public IP?

    Yes I did. I made sure of it....

    I had done the basic config based on info I had searched for on the net.

    Please direct your browser to (replace with your server's IP address and then tell assp to listen on

    Does your firewall allow connections on port 55555?
