    Hi there.

    I was following the Perfect Setup for FC5 right to the letter on 2 machines. One of them is working fine (so far.. haven't completed the tutorial).

    and the other has a problem (duh). Both were done exactly the same(as far as I can tell)

    I'm now up to page 5 of the tutorial

    and when doing a telnet to localhost, the connection is "Closed by Foreign Host".

    So I tried to telnet from yet another computer in the house and i lost the connection too...

    Any ideas?

    If I'm no wrong, on this problem machine, i mispelled some words during the openssl part of the tutorial and reran the commands to re-enter the data
