    Re: port 110

    Hi kinalas.

    This is how it's done:

    1. Double-Click your "Local Area Connection" (Start-Menu\Settings\Network Connections)
    2. Click "Properties"
    3. Click the "Advanced" Tab anf click "Settings".
    4. Click the "Exceptions tab" tab and click on "Add Port"
    5. Type "POP3" in the "Name" box and type "110" in the "Port number" box
    and make sure the TCP checkbox in selected.
    Click "OK" and close all open dialouges.
    6. All done.

    2 links that covers the concept (about XP but applies to Server 2003 too:

      This is assuming the author has Windows Firewall enabled.

      Kinalas, is this the case?

        Or...
        Kinalas.... do you acctually mean "How do I enable a POP3 server on my Windows 2003 Server?" (which runs on tcp port 110, and therefor nothing is responding to requests on 110)
        If not - Try to be more specific about what you mean.

          You don't just "open" a port. You need to put something behind it, you need to install an application/service that binds itself to that port and answers incoming calls.

          Port 110 (I assume TCP) is normally associated with the POP3 service, therefore if you want itto accept calls you will either need to install some sort of POP3 service (Windows 2003 has one), a mail server, or another program that listens to that port.
