Thanks guys, but my problem is getting outbound connections to other smpt
servers. I am testing by telnetting to another host on port 25. I am not
getting connected from one particuliar machine only, and it has no selinux
running. I have another windoze box that this does work for. This happened
after I created a nat rule, which I've since removed. I am not sure if
perhaps a remnant of this rule is hosing me somehow, which is why I need to
know how to clean nat cache or something else.
