    Hello everone...

    Not sure if this is the right place or not.. but here is teh question.

    Last night, I started getting a message:
    "Thunderbird was unable to connect, the host refused connection"

    Now, I tried to telnet into port 110, and alas I can not get to the port, however from a different machine I can just fine.

    I thought maybe I got locked out in APF, so I cleared the firewall rules (for testing) and tried again.. no go..

    I know there is another file somewhere that might be blocking this connection.

    has anyone heard of this or had th is problem before?

    Thanks
    Dave

    Go on, have a guess
    Well, if you cannot connect to port 110 from the PC, then the problem is not with Thunderbird, but is either on a the PC's firewall if you have one, or your servers. Especially, if you can connect OK from a different PC.

    Did you try stopping iptables completely?

    service iptables stop

    then make sure that there're only the standard 3*2 lines in:

    iptables -L -n

    Yeah I turned off IP Tables..

    But how could it change over night.. I don't use XP Firewall.. and it was working on night, but not in the am..

    I'll have to check Norton to see what it's reporting..

    I was thinking my IP for my home computer got thrown in a os file somewhere that was denying my connection.. I'll look through those too..

    Thanks for the heads up Chirpy

    OKay .. I've checked.. no personal firewall .. no windows firewall setup..

    So I'm not too sure why the server is refusing me connection..

    Got any other ideas anyone? :|

    Thanks

    Norton can be a PITA. Disable it and see if you can connect.
