    fail to telnet localhost 106


    Hi folks,


    Ubuntu 7.04 server amd64


    On running;

    $ telnet localhost 106
    Code:
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

    $ netstat -an | grep 106
    $ sudo netstat -an | grep 106
    both no printout


    Pls advise where shall I check and how to fix the problem. TIA


    P.S.
    1)
    confirmed with ISP port 106 is open

    2)
    I'm adding "change password" plugin on SquirrelMail. After installing poppassd on repo I tested it whether works according to /usr/local/squirrelmail/www/plugins/change_pass/INSTALL
    Code:
    Be sure to test and make certain your poppass daemon is working properly.
    To test, try telneting into the daemon and changing a password:
    
    $ telnet localhost 106
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    200 poppassd v1.8.1 hello, who are you?
    user <username>
    200 Your password please.
    pass <oldpassword>
    200 Your new password please.
    newpass <newpassword>
    200 Password changed, thank-you.
    quit
    200 Bye.
    Connection closed by foreign host.

    sudo netstat -an | grep 106 -> no pinout?

    Looks like the Port might be open but there isnt a Process behind it..?
    what does netstart -an give?

    cheers,
    Robin

    Thanks for your advice.


    Problem already solved after reinstalling poppassd and installing openbsd-inetd. Now changing password on Squirrelmail works.
