    Hi, Itry to install everything like in this tutorial:

    The Perfect Server - OpenSUSE 10.3 (32-bit) - Page 5
    http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_server_opensuse10.3_p5

    I'm stuck at step 9 Postfix With SMTP-AUTH And TLS

    I enter:
    PHP:
    /etc/init.d/postfix restart
    telnet localhost 25
    and I get this error:

    PHP:
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    telnetconnect to address 127.0.0.1Connection refused
    Trying 
    ::1...
    telnetconnect to address ::1Connection refused
    I tried to verify if anything listens on port 25
    PHP:
    netstat -atpn
    And nothing listens on port 25? Why what I did wrong?
    BTW I'm new to linux so please explain step by step.

    Thanks. Just trying to get ISPConfig to run :)

    could you tell me the commands view the log file?
    I installed SUSE like totorial said in text mode, and only etitor is vi?
    How to copy the log to USB drive so I could post it here along with postfix config file?

    I would like to post boot log too :)

    If you're using a Windows desktop, you can copy over the log file to your desktop with WinSCP: http://winscp.net/

    You can as well open the log on the shell, e.g. like this:
    Code:
    cat /var/log/mail
    or
    Code:
    tail -n100 /var/log/mail 
    (shows the last 100 lines from /var/log/mail).
