I'm looking for some suggestions regarding a problem that just cropped up on my linux server.
What's happening is: Attempts to login to the machine (telnet, rlogin, console, IMAP) fails. Telnet doesn't even show the "username" prompt, console and rlogin attempts freeze up after the password: prompt.
sendmail is receiving mail, and I can retrieve it with POP, but not IMAP. I can connect with FTP just fine.
I figure I should see a pattern here, but don't and would love it if someone could point it out to me.
All the files are local (no NFS)...
rlogin (stops after password entered)
console (stops after password entered)
telnet (not even a username: prompt)
IMAP fails to connect
