Subject: [courier-users] Connection to port 113
I appreciate the quick response to my last question. Now I've got another
Why is my mailserver trying to open a connection back to port 113 whenever
make an SMTP connection? I am not using any authentication. This is
causing the SMTP connection to take about 30 seconds since my firewall is
denying the connection to 113. Is there a setting that I may have turned
do a 'cat /etc/services | grep 113'
You will see that port 113 is an identd lookup. The system is pausing for
30 seconds trying to do this lookup.
I thought reverse-dns lookups were done on port 53, but I could be wrong.
