    I'm following this guide (which is great stuff), but I'm having a problem with the MySQL section.

    When I run "netstat -tap" I see this line:

    tcp        0      0 *:mysql                 *:*                     LISTEN     -
    I don't get the "2449/mysqld" as the last thing, but only a "-".
    My "skip-networking" thing in "/etc/mysql/my.cnf" i commented out and MySQL restartet - but the same thing is in "netstat -tap".

    Anyone has a suggestion?

    Ok, but shouldn't MySQL listen on a specific port?

    Ok, now I get another problem.

    When I try this:

    sudo echo 'pwcheck_method: saslauthd' >> /etc/postfix/sasl/smtpd.conf
    I get a:

    -bash: /etc/postfix/sasl/smtpd.conf: Permission denied

    Dont use sudo, you must login as root user! All steps in the howto must be done as root user.

    MySQL listens on a specific port:


    means that it listens on all available IP's on the mysql port.

    Ok thanks till!!

    I now ran into trouble again.

    When I run the "telnet localhost 25" it only shows:

    Connected to localhost.localdomain.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    220 ESMTP Postfix (Ubuntu)
    And nothing more happens..... It times out.

    Anyone? I really need help...
