    Does anyone have any idea how to accomplish Qmail SMTP running on an alternate port for FreeBSD, the copying, /etc/services instructions for RedHat don't work / apply to the FreeBSD install. ANY help would be appreciated.

    in /etc/services

    smtpXXX NEWPORT/tcp mail #Simple Mail Transfer
    smtpXXX NEWPORT/udp mail #Simple Mail Transfer

    XXX= somehting unique so its different from just smtp, and NEWPORT is the port you wish to run it on (make sure you dont interfere with anything else)

    in /etc/inetd.conf

    copy the line that starts:

    smtp stream tcp nowait root

    and change smtp to smtpXXX

    Now simply restart inetd

    kill -HUP `cat /var/run/inetd.pid`

    and check its running with

    telnet localhost NEWPORT

    Hi Mikk,

    The posted solution allows Qmail to listen on both port 25 and newport for SMTP connections, or it only substitutes port 25 with newport ?

    Thanks
