    Hello Group...


    I have been trying to figure out why PostFix always makes the declaration that is doesn't know our internal connections.

    When I run 'tail -f /var/log/mail.log' I see the following:
    Code:
    Jun  8 12:18:00 giganetwireless imapd: Connection, ip=[::ffff:65.197.209.10]
    Jun  8 12:18:00 giganetwireless pop3d: Connection, ip=[::ffff:65.197.209.10]
    Jun  8 12:18:00 giganetwireless imapd: Disconnected, ip=[::ffff:65.197.209.10], time=0
    Jun  8 12:18:00 giganetwireless pop3d: Disconnected, ip=[::ffff:65.197.209.10]
    Jun  8 12:18:00 giganetwireless postfix/smtpd[5791]: connect from unknown[65.197.209.10]
    Jun  8 12:18:00 giganetwireless postfix/smtpd[5791]: lost connection after EHLO from unknown[65.197.209.10]
    Jun  8 12:18:00 giganetwireless postfix/smtpd[5791]: disconnect from unknown[65.197.209.10]
    
    I have tried and tried to fix this issue but can never seem to hit the mark and find how to resolve this issue once and for all.

    The actual server IP is 65.197.209.3, the IP you are seeing in the log above is my Internet trunk interceptors IP which controls access to the Internet for myself and clients alike in a wireless network.

    Can you tell me what I am missing so I can resolve this issue?

    Thank you very much :)

    Best Regards

    What I can imagine is that the reverse record for 65.197.209.3 is a host name which in return doesn't point back to 65.197.209.3, but to 65.197.209.10 instead.
