i want my nice ubuntu box with exim4 to listen on other freaking ports to get around firewall rules. but i am that cool. or tired. my ip address is 10.6.6.6 since i'm using the whole debconf thing: go into /etc/exim4/update-exim4.conf.conf dc_local_interfaces='127.0.0.1:10.6.6.6.8080:10.6.6.6.25' see that colon? that goes between ip addresses you are interested on listening on. see that octet and then period number? yeah. that's the port number you want to listen on. now. this is way different than the smarthost port to send to. the smarthost gets ::port. yeah. issue: # update-exim4.conf maybe a little # /etc/init.d/exim4 restart vid: /var/log/exim4/mainlog: 2013-05-24 11:33:30 exim 4.69 daemon started: pid=24362, -q30m, listening for SMTP on [127.0.0.1]:25 [10.6.6.6]:8080 [10.6.6.6]:25 what does lsof say? exim4 24362 Debian-exim 3u IPv4 3386590 TCP localhost:25 (LISTEN) exim4 24362 Debian-exim 4u IPv4 3386591 TCP evil:8080 (LISTEN) exim4 24362 Debian-exim 5u IPv4 3386592 TCP evil:25 (LISTEN)alright. time to go back to sleep.
