Re: telnet/pop3 question


Do you have any hosts.allow or hosts.deny configured?  Also, RedHat 7.2 
installs ipchains by default.  Have you added a rule to allow inbound traffic 
on port 110?

One quick way to test if ipchains is your problem is to do an "ipchains -F", 
that will flush all of the firewall rules.  If you can then attach, you know 
that ipchains is your problem.

Good luck,
