Looks OK. I also executed the iptables command below, had no apparent effect. However, if I log on to Linux as JRM and try to execute popa3d it says "command not found", even if I cd to /usr/sbin where the executable is. So I suspect there is a permissions problem. I have changed the permissions for popa3d in /usr/sbin to "everybody can execute" it still won't execute it for anybody except root. Is there a config file for popa3d somewhere? I can't find one. How does it know what to do? Thanks to everyone for continuing assistance . . .
