at times, I even tried disabling the firewall altogether but no change.
the router is just a pass thru zoom dsl router
and I am not using NAT anywhere.
in the all of rivers-bend.com there is only one public ip:
when I am testing that fc3 machine, it's the only server up...dns is
fine in that box as it is in this fc2 box
I can telnet to port 25 for what it's worth...
here is list of open ports using nmap:
Starting nmap 3.70 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap/ ) at 2005-03-09 08:05
Interesting ports on rbmain2.rivers-bend.com (10.0.0.12):
(The 1654 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: closed)
PORT STATE SERVICE
22/tcp open ssh
25/tcp open smtp
53/tcp open domain
110/tcp open pop3
111/tcp open rpcbind
113/tcp open auth
Nmap run completed -- 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 0.283 seconds
...hoping this might shed little more light on all this.
The only times my computer fails to come on is after I shut it off.
