Really Simple Problem



  • I am new to pfSense, and am struggling with the most basic of things, I'm embarrased.

    I have a virgin 2.2.1 system and want to send mail to my mail server (IMAP) on 192.168.1.10.

    I have set up a firewall rule on the WAN tab to send IMAP traffic from any source to Lan net

    I have set up a firewall rule on the LAN tabl to send IMAP traffic from any source to 192.168.1.10

    Nothing is getting to my server.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks

    Mark.



  • NAT?



  • HI Thanks.

    Yes, I spotted this shortly after - I hadn't realised that NAT meant Port Forwarding! (I guess it shows how new I am to pfSense and proper firewalls.

    I have now set up a NAT rule which is:

    Port Forward TCP, Src Addr - * , Src Ports - * , Dest Addr - Lan net , Dest Ports - IMAP 143, Nat IP 192.168.1.10, Port - 143

    It still isnt working.

    Thanks for any help.

    " send mail to my mail server (IMAP)"

    Who exactly is sending mail to this server via imap?

    IMAP is not a sending protocol..  You don't "send" mail with imap, you get your mail and retrieve your mail with imap - but you don't send mail with it..
