OpeneSuSE 11.1: FSOCKOPEN Connection Timed Out

view story

http://forums.opensuse.org – I have a php mail application that I am running in apache. I'm having it use a mail server that has been up for years. The application is not able to connect to the mail server. The developer put a test.php that uses fsockopen to connect to my mail server. It returns the error "Connection Timed Out". I'm able to ping my mail server just fine from there. I found sites that talk about the command "setsebool -P httpd_can_network_connect 1"....but that command doesnt seem to work. Any ideas?
