    Hi I'm new to Linux

    I have just started following The Perfect Server - Fedora7 - got to page 5 and down to "To see if SMTP-AUTH and TLS work properly now run the following command: "


    [[email protected] ~]# telnet localhost 25
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.

    At this point the session hangs with a blinking cursor :confused: .
    So far I have followed the guide and each point where ask to vi everthing matches to the letter and had no differing output other than NIC/eth0, hosts etc.
    I have included some output below.

    Please could someone assist?

    Many thanks in advance

    Jas

    This behaviour is fine. At the point where you get the blinking cursor, type:

    ehlo localhost
