Re: shorewall & IMAP

I was having a problem today, trying my laptop & IMAP from my debian desktop. I looked in the rules file, & figured out why my web server wasn't working. It only showed port 80, but I had changed apache to port 81, forgetting about shorewall! When I saw the port 80 in there, I changed it to 81 & apached started working again.

But I am still having a problem getting IMAP mail from the desktop via IMAP to my laptop. When I turn off shorewall I get the mail.
Here is what I added to rules:

# grep IMAP rules
# IMAP server
IMAP/ACCEPT     net   $FW
IMAPS/ACCEPT    net   $FW


what else do I need for shorewall to let me get IMAP email ?
Running the firewall on your desktop? Then you need
IMAP/ACCEPT     $FW	net
IMAPS/ACCEPT    $FW	net

You can try if it works by telnetting from your laptop to your desktop on port 143 (plain) or 993 (ssl). Check in the main time your /var/log/messages on the desktop to see if any blocked traffic has been logged.

Good luck!
