problem on installation

Post by gdewey » Wed Jan 28, 2015 9:45 pm

Hi I installed the 64 bit package in our postfix server

root@mail:/home/ubuntu/MagicSpam# dpkg -i magicspam-postfix-1.0.8-1.3-trusty64.amd64.deb

seems like the connection to the installed webserver/port is not working at all. I am 100% sure there is no fw in between.. any idea?

I am using ubuntu server 14.01

Hello Gdewey,

Thank you for your post and we are sorry to hear about the issue!

If you could, please run the following command on your server. This will allow us to see if the service is actually listening on TCP port 6244:

Code: Select all

 netstat -ntlp | grep 6244 
Appart from that, please make sure that you are using HTTPS in your address bar and not just HTTP (as that can sometimes catch people off guard).

I also checked no fw on the os was active.

Hello Guillermo,

Thank you for your replies (we aproved one because they were nearly identical).

The output of the netstat command indicates that MagicSpam is listening on all interfaces on port 6244 and is working as expected.

You *can* use netstat to also track incomming connections, but we have a suspicion that the connections are not making it to the server. If you run a port scan (eg. nmap) on the server, see if TCP port 6244 is open. If it is not open, it indicates that a firewall is blocking the connection.

If you are unable to track down the firewall responsible, or if you just want to work around the problem, you could look into something called SSH Tunnelling. Example - ... Forwarding

We apologize that we cannot be of more direct assistance, but MagicSpam appears to be working as expected.
