http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi all, I have installed roundcube in my web server and I need to set up poppassd for users can change their password. I have followed all the steps to set it up but it does not work. First, I edited /etc/services and I uncommented the lines Code: 3com-tsmux    106/tcp        poppassd 3com-tsmux    106/udp        poppassd Before those lines you can read: # unfortunately the poppassd (Eudora) uses a port which has already # been assigned to a different service. We list the poppassd as an # alias here. This should work for programs asking for this service. # (due to a bug in inetd the 3com-tsmux line is disabled) but I do not understand right the meaning :( Then I put in /etc/xinetd.d/poppassd the next: Code: service poppassd {         socket_type = stream         protocol = tcp         wait = no         disable = no         user = root         flags = KEEPALIVE         server = /usr/sbin/poppassd         only_from = 127.0.0.1         log_on_success  += USERID         log_on_failure  += USERID } And I restart xinetd. It is supossed that it should work now if I do: telnet localhost 106, but I get: Code: Trying 127.0.0.1... telnet: connect to address 127.0.0.1: Connection refused netstat -an | grep '106' returns only: Code: unix  3      [ ]        STREAM    CONNECTED    632106 /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket and ps aux | grep poppassd says: Code: root    21559  0.0  0.0  4188  696 pts/0    S+  13:18  0:00 grep poppassd so, poppassd is running but not listening any port? Code: nmap localhost Starting Nmap 5.00 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2010-03-09 13:23 CET Interesting ports on localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1): Not shown: 989 closed ports PORT      STATE SERVICE 21/tcp    open  ftp 22/tcp    open  ssh 25/tcp    open  smtp 80/tcp    open  http 81/tcp    open  hosts2-ns 111/tcp  open  rpcbind 631/tcp  open  ipp 873/tcp  open  rsync 3306/tcp  open  mysql 3551/tcp  open  unknown 55555/tcp open  unknown No firewall entries: Code: iptables -nL Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT) target    prot opt source              destination Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT) target    prot opt source              destination Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT) target    prot opt source              destination If I run the command : /usr/sbin/poppassd it runs properly. I can change password, etc... I do not know what to do. Logs does not say anything neither. Anybody can help me? Thanks in advance (HowTos)
