i have trouble opening a port on a vps running ubuntu 10.04.
the firewall i am currently using is ufw.it is already configured for SSH, Apache, MySQL, FTP, etc...
but i can't open port 465 for smtp.
i am using the PEAR SMTP library to send mails via smtp from php scrips.the SMTP server i'm using is from gmail and uses:
i tried the following:
Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587
Port for SSL: 465
but my script still can't connect to the SMTP server.i'm 99% sure that is firewall related because when i turn it off everything works perfectly.
ufw allow 465
ufw allow 465/tcp
ufw allow 465/udp
ufw allow 587
ufw allow 587/tcp
ufw allow 587/udp
forget it, no firewall.i spent 6 hours trying to configure it and still no result.
