Using Linux Mandrake 7.2 as a firewall for my home LAN. I'm pretty "newbe".
Question is: I can't get my Free Agent (news reader) to work on my winblows machine. I assume it's a port that the FW has closed. How do I open the port that Free Agent uses in Mandrake 7.2. Be specific - remember - I'm a newbe. :)
Tanks a million.
News servers use port 119 usually. Your firewall is probably blocking it. Have you looked in your firewall logs to see what is being rejected?
I have never used Mandrake. What program do they use to configure the firewall setting?
Do you know where they store the config file?
I will see if Spot knows anything. He "was" a Drake user for a long time. He has "reformed" and switched to Red Hat.
