Hi Mark,

provided that you have Postfix installed and depending on whether you know
what you are doing you can: a) the easiest way: use YaST to configure
Postfix, b) edit /etc/postfix/main.cf and set the proper values.
After a) or b), you can start Postfix issuing /etc/init.d/postfix start as
root.

HTH,

Martin

Better way of doing option B is editing /etc/sysconfig/postfix and
adding the things you need rather then editing /etc/postfix/main.cf For
example having this in /etc/sysconfig/postfix and then running
suseconfig --module postfix will edit the /etc/postfix/main.cf while
using the SuSEconfig as it is designed

Hi,

I'm using suse 9. I'm also using webmin.
The problem is that I can't reach the smtp server from outside. Also,
when I send mails to root I get error mails that the mail couldn't be
sent in my emailbox (emailbox = a POP box at the web).

Sorry to barge in on this discussion, but I'm having the same problem.

I have postfix runing and amy trying to send/receive mail to/from outside IP
addresses without using my ISP's email servers.

I can send mail out, but cannot seem to recieve. I don't have a domain
registerd yet, but trying to send mail to ***@ipaddress.

I have SMTPD_LISTEN_REMOTE=yes

Also have POSTFIX_MDA=local

My firewall (not Suse but a nat router) set for port 25 open, able to ping
from wan.

I'm using Kmail as my mua. Network/incoming account type/local to/var/mail/me.
Should this be set up as a Maildir account??

Any other suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated. This has been driving me
nuts!

Thanks in advance.

Good luck!

From the outside, try to telnet to port 25; you should get something like
this:

|***@nimrodel:~> telnet localhost 25
|Trying ::1...
|telnet: connect to address ::1: Connection refused
|Trying 127.0.0.1...
|Connected to localhost.
|Escape character is '^]'.
|220 nimrodel.valinor ESMTP Postfix
|QUIT
|221 Bye
|Connection closed by foreign host.
|***@nimrodel:~>

If you sauced, then you might need a domain name, with an MX field - ie,
when you use "host -t MX host.domain" you must get an answer. Mailers use
type MX queries.

If you can not telnet in to port 25, then your ISP is blocking it.

Hi Folks, I've a SuSE Professional LAN (192.168.1.x) connected
with a windows machines [the Windows machines have a Workgroup: Site_1)
... at remote location (connected using Frame Relay) I have another
bunch of Windows machines connected using another Workgroup (Site_2) and
other LAN (192.168.2.x).

I defined my routes so I can 'ping' the machines at Site_2 from
Site_1, also the machines from Site_2 can ssh/access the application on
Linux. Almost everything works fine ... but now the customer wants to
use the printer's attached to machines on WG Site_2 from a Windows
machine located on Site_1.

SaMBa is working as file & printer sharing ...

I thought I can reach the SMB shares of Site_2 Lan just editing
LMHOSTS and re-starting SaMBa. But, I can't access / read the machines
at other Workgroup (Site_2) from Linux. I tryied:

nmbstatus
but this command just scans the local lan (Site_1)

I tryied too:
nmbstatus --allworkgroups
and
nmbstatus --workgroup Site_2

I wrote down the Site_2's machine node_1 in /etc/smb/lmhost,
and tryied
(after re-starting nmb and smb deamons):
smbclient -L node_1 -N

But still I can't print on a printer attached to a Windows
machine on remote lan ...

Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks,
Jean H//

This is not a fault of linux or the windows machines. You need to turn on
bridging on the routers if you want to pass netbios traffic. Either that
or putting them all in the same workgroup might help.

I have the same setup here, Cisco routers and Frame/Relay but all of our
wan connections are in the same workgroup and we can at least reach the
remote machines using \\168.192.x.x\share.

Just my $.02

Hi Ken, using the same hardware setup (Cisco Routers and
Frame/Relay) but with SCO Open Server and Advacned File & Printer Server
(using SMB); the SCO's AF&PS can handle the printing requests ... I
think your suggestion of using the same workgroup could be the solution,
my doubt is because the nmbstatus and smbclients (looks) like if they
can handle shares across different workgroups ...

Thanks,

Perhaps it's because this list insists on sending to the poster, instead
of the link. This means that in order to keep it on the list some
people have to click on reply to all. If they don't then delete one
address, two copies get sent.

Yes I have read the FAQ and I still think that practice stinks. If I'm
posting to the list, I generally want the replies to go to the list
ONLY!!! Having to check to make sure the correct address is selected,
is a pain in the a**.

Perhaps it's because this list insists on sending to the poster,
instead of the link. This means that in order to keep it on the list
some people have to click on reply to all. If they don't then delete
one address, two copies get sent.
Yes I have read the FAQ and I still think that practice stinks. If
I'm posting to the list, I generally want the replies to go to the
list ONLY!!! Having to check to make sure the correct address is
selected, is a pain in the a**.
=============

James,
I believe if you check your settings in Mozilla mail, you will find it
can be set to reply to the list, if a mail list is specified.

Secondly, what does mail replies have to do with SMB shares in other
LANs? Please start a new mail/thread, if you are going to change the
thread and/or body of the message. I also point this to any others
that feel the need to change things in mid-stream, since Kenneth felt
it necessary to start it.

I also know this has been beat to death, but the top posting is getting
old. Mozilla allows bottom replies, so I have to blame the user for
not taking advantage of it. Simple things make the list much easier &
better to use, it's not brain surgery folks, at least give the
impression you are trying.

Perhaps in a later version. It doesn't appear to be an option in 1.3.

I'm not the one who started this discussion. IIRC, I replies to a reply
to the first mention.

If you've been watching my messages, you'll realize that I generally
bottom post, but it's not something I'm rigid about.

Mozilla 1.2.1 (the version of SuSE 8.2) does not even allow a folder to be
specified as belonging to a list - the only property you can define for a
folder is the "default character codding". The only options in the
"Message" menu are: New, Reply, reply to all, forward, forward as, edit as
new - and this has being so for years (counting Netscape as its
predecessor).

If you know of a version of Mozilla that behaves otherwise, please specify
which one you know for certain to have that feature, and exactly how you
enable it. I am very interested.

I fully agree James and really wish the SLE moderator would change this
policy.

Hi Folks, I've a SuSE Professional LAN (192.168.1.x) connected
Sir, you have hi-jacked a continuing discussion (Thread: postfix smtp
server). Please begin your own thread with a new message, not by
responding to an existing message and changing the subject. (Or at
least delete the 'In-Reply-To:' header.

thanks,
