    Hi

    I can smell it - i am almost there to the end. Not bad for a first timer.

    I am at step 10: postfix with smtp-auth and tls where the task says to check if smtp-auth and tls are working, by telneting to localhost port 25. Below is the output of that command - basically connection refused - why is that?

    Firewall and selinux are disabled.

    While yr here, the next command says 'ehlo localhost'. i have done a quick search on my system and i cannot find the command ehlo, is this meant to be echo?

    [[email protected] postfix]# telnet localhost 25
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).
    Escape character is '^]'.
    Connection closed by foreign host.
    [[email protected] postfix]# ehlo localhost
    bash: ehlo: command not found
