smtp ipchains rule... please help
Recently, I had to change my firewall rules for smtp to the following:
ipchains -A input -i eth0 -s 0/0 smtp -d 0/0 -p tcp -j ACCEPT -b
Becuase the following started showing up in my syslog from ipchains.
Can someone explain what could have happend? My IP is the 65.28.......
It looks like external systems are now trying to connect 25-> random
What should the rule be to allow me to send email out and to allow other
MTA to send email to me?
