I’m trying to move my domain (defaria.com) -> Dreamhost Compute. I got most of it set up but I have not managed to connect to IMAP. I have IMAP (Courier) running and from my Dreamhost compute server I can telnet localhost 143 and I see the server respond. But if I telnet 184.108.40.206 143 from my defaria.com server I do not get a response. Smells like the port 143 is being blocked but I think I put in the right command to open that port. I used:
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 143 -j ACCEPT
as well as
ufw allow 143
but neither worked.
Also, as it stands I have to ssh in as dhc-user@. I’ve created a user for myself (useradd andrew) but I cannot ssh andrew@. When I try I get “Permission denied (publickey)”. Do I have to make a user through some other means?
Finally, is there a name for this server or do I have to use the IP address forever? I guess when I’m satisfied that it’ll work for my domain I will move the ip address for defaria.com to point here.
