I get the feeling this should be a FAQ.. Seems to be a lot of confusion
caused by the "firewall" settings in RH7.1 :|
What's more than likely happening is you set the firewall setting too

(Look lads - had to mention it didn't I?:)
>> Hello All,
> I'm new to Linux and have just installed RedHat 7.1. Installation appeared to go fine however I need to run an application that requires Sendmail.
>> Sendmail is running but I can't receive mail. I can telnet to port 25 from localhost but not from another machine.
>> If I use telnet machinename.domain.ie 25 I get connection refused however, if I telnet localhost 25 I get connected. It appears to be binding to localhost and not the NIC.
