Sendmail refuses all connections except localhost
I've just installed sendmail and it works fine if i telnet to it like so:
telnet localhost 25
I can communicate with the daemon and get my email queue'd for delivery. The private network IP running the server is 192.168.0.4 and when i do this
telnet 192.168.0.4 25
whether its on the actual server computer or a computer on the private network the connection is always refused. Any ideas?

This could be a firewalling problem - check that the firewall settings on your system allow connections over the lan on port 25.Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/

Sendmail is configured that way by default. Comment out the "DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA')dnl" line in sendmail.mc, rebuild your sendmail.cf and restart the sendmail daemon.
