Hello,

  I have a quick question for you ipfw/firewall experts out there.

  I've have set up an elaborate firewall only to have trouble with
  Sendmail.

  I have opened port 25 incoming, and also allow outgoing to another
  port 25, but I always find stuck mail when I use "mailq".

  Using tcpdump -- and no firewall -- I've found that between the
  dns lookups and smtp connections there are in fact some auth
  lookups too.

  I opened incoming port 113 and outgoing to 113 but I still have
  stuck mail!

  Any help would be greately appreciated, many thanks in advance!

PS
My basic rules look like:

ipfw add NNNN allow \{ tcp or udp \}     from any to any smtp,smtps out
ipfw add NNNN allow \{ tcp \}        log from any to any smtp,smtps in

ipfw add NNNN allow \{ tcp or udp \}     from any to any auth out
ipfw add NNNN allow \{ tcp \}        log from any to any auth in

and yes, this is ipfw2 on 4.8-STABLE
