    I have installed poppassd on a linux box using squirrel mail(imapd). However, after installing the required modules, the password changer does not work. On checking port 106, I get the below error when telneting to it

    [[email protected] root]# telnet localhost 106
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    Connection closed by foreign host.
    [[email protected] root]#

    I checked whether port is open and got this

    [[email protected] root]# netstat -an |grep 106
    tcp 0 0* LISTEN

    My configuration
    service poppassd
    disable = no
    socket_type = stream
    protocol = tcp
    wait = no
    port = 106
    user = root
    server = /usr/sbin/poppassd
    only_from =
    log_on_success += HOST DURATION
    log_on_failure += HOST

    Any ideas why I can't telnet to port 106 or rather why password changer is not working

    Are there any errors in your logs?

    No errors, but have realized sometimes I have the below:

    [[email protected] root]# netstat -an |grep 106
    tcp 0 0* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 TIME_WAIT

    Am thinking maybe my the modules am installing might not be the correct version. I have a linux Redhat ver. 9. Any specific modules for this version both poppassd and change pass

    Why are you using such an old Linux distribution? If you want something RedHat-based, I suggest you try CentOS 5.1.

    Have you checked tcp wrappers ?

    Well after checking on the tcp wrappers /etc/hosts.allow , poppassd wasn't included and adding it to the file fixed the bug. Thanks so much for all who have participated in sorting me out.
