Redhat 9 and Qmail - POP Connection restrictions
Posted on 2004-10-25
Just moved my POP accounts onto a Red Hat 9 server running Qmail.
For some reason, the server will not accept more than 4 concurrent POP3 connections from my workstation.
I can't find any rejection of the 5th connection in any logs I've looked it.
Before I start to rip into this, is anyone aware of restrictions of this kind, by default.
I would guess the 5th connection could be stopped by :
1. A firewall
2. The POP listener failing with the 5th due to load or some other issue
3. Perhaps some sort of overall machine restriction to prevent a DoS attack?
4. Some other issue with my workstattion, but it worked before when the POP accounts were hosted elsewhere.
