Re: debian-firewall: how do I let SMTP through with ipmasq ??
My setup is : Internet ---[a.b.c.d MasqueradingFirewall 192.168.0.1] ---
On my firewall I have executed the command "ipmasqadm portfw -a -P tcp -L a.b.c.d
25 -R 192.168.0.5 25" so that incoming SMTP will be forwarded to machine
192.168.0.5. I don't seem to be able to send mail to the mailserver via the
masquerading firewall (eg. firstname.lastname@example.org should get redirected to
email@example.com). It gets bounced back with unknown DNS host. How can I test
that my firewall is letting through the SMTP packets ?
The IPMASQ FAQ (sect 7.31) says "You have to first understand that both IPFWADM
and IPCHAINS run *AFTER* the routing system has decided where to send a packet."
I assume this is true for portfw, so I don't need to setup a specific "ipchains
input" rule for that host/port". Is that correct.
Assuming my "ipmasqadm portfw" command above is correct, is there any other
commands (ipmasqadm, ipchains, etc) that I need to run to get mail coming in to
my masqueraded mailserver (192.168.0.5) ?
There is an example in section 7 of the IPCHAINS FAQ, but the servers in the
demilitarised zones have public IP addresses. It purely uses IPCHIANS, not
portfw. I think I need portfw because of the masquerading. Is this correct ?
