I am stumped.  I am trying to test smtp port 25 on a remote system using 
BigBrother.  I am unable to get my 2 freebsd system to connect to this or 
any other system on port 25.  I can connect from a windows system on my same 
private network.  I can connect to both freebsd systems running sendmail on 
port 25 by telnet from windows.  I have tried  connecting between the 2 
freebsd systems with telnet on port 25 and it is refused.  I can connect to 
all systems I have tried from windows on port 25, so I know it should work.  
I have tried sending email using sendmail and that fails also.  Is there 
something broken in freebsd that would cause all port 25 traffic to fail 
going out of the systems? I have a dsl modem and a wireless router that my 2 
freebsd systems and my windows system are directly plugged into.
