How to open 110 port


Hello,

Port 110 on my server is closed and I cant get emails

I have used
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 110 -m state --state NEW -j ACCEPT

and port is still closed

In configuration of firewall (APF) port 110 is enabled, when I have stopped APF Firewall port 110 was still closed.

What more can I do?

Thank you,
Rafal

Do you have anything running on port 110?

lsof -i :110

IF your mail server has shut down (depending on what system you have) you may get it to startup with a simple

A) service courier-imap start
B) login to your control panel and restart the entire mail server
C) reboot the box - perhaps your pop/mail daemon died.

Not sure what you run so one of the above 3 should do the trick. Doesn't sound entirely like its a firewall issue to me - but if it is the quickest check is just shut off iptables for a second and re-check.

I use CentOS 3 and cPanel
but restarting services is not enough

MAIL services are working OK, I just cannot conntect to 110 and other users too.

If you type from a shell on your local computer (or through a DOS box):

telnet <your server IP> 110

where <your server IP> is the IP of your server. Does it connect? Does it timeout? What happens?

Rule out the firewall first, disable it...

/sbin/iptables -P INPUT ACCEPT
/sbin/iptables -P OUTPUT ACCEPT
/sbin/iptables -F
/sbin/iptables -X

See if it works
