When i make the changes to xinetd so the imap,pop3 daemon that comes
with courier listens on port 143 and 110. the default port for these
services. then i try to telent to port 143 and all i get is (lost
connection with host or cannot make connection with host).
if i cd to to the courier directory. and ./imapd i get the default login
* OK [192.168.10.220] IMAP4rev1 v12.264 server ready
So i know it compiler ok.
if i do the same for the pop it does the same.
What am i doing wrong.
Has anyone encountered a simmilar problem.
