sendmail: opendaemonsocket

Post by EMail User EUne » Tue, 18 Feb 1997 04:00:00

I try to setup linux as SMTP-Server.
When I start sendmail I get the following entries in /var/log/messages:

Feb 17 09:45:06 gbslnx01 sendmail[509]: starting daemon (8.8.4):

Feb 17 09:45:06 gbslnx01 sendmail[509]: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root):
opendaemonsocket: cannot bind: Address already in use
Feb 17 09:45:06 gbslnx01 sendmail[509]: problem creating SMTP socket

I am not sure, if the SMTP-Service is working or not. When I try to
receive mails from my Internet provider (with xscript), I get a timeout.

Any help appreciated.
