Port 25 blocked ?

Hi, i have setup port forwarding to forward port 25 to my workstation, but i cannot connect to it through telnet.
I have disabled firewall/antivirus, etc...

I am able to connect to port 587, which i also forwarded, but no port 25.

Is Fizz blocking port 25 ?

Hi Yanick

Some ports may be reserved. Please consult the modem manual if this helps

No ports are blocked by Fizz (or Vidéotron who manages the infrastructure).

Double check your settings on router, firewalls, VPN, windows, etc.

Hi everyone, thanks for your answers !

But i really do believe port 25 is blocked, since i reconfigured my SMTP server to listen on port 26 and i can now telnet to it without problems.

If i change it back to listen on port 25, nothing....

I have found a company, which can redirect your incoming emails to a port other than 25, i am waiting for it to be configured to test it.

Thanks,
Yanick
