Have the above lines in an ASA. Yet when I try to test if port 25 is open by doing "telnet 126.96.36.199 25" i get connection refused.
Now, for some reason I seem to remember this being normal behavior for an ASA or PIX. Something to do with the "fixup" idea from a PIX? I never quite understood that.
Could someone tell me if I should be able to telnet to port 25 on that IP address using an ASA? I know you should be able to with, say, a SonicWall.
