Timeout using MIME::Liteby footpad (Monsignor)
|on Jun 04, 2001 at 20:30 UTC||Need Help??|
footpad has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have a CGI script using MIME::Lite to upload a file and send it off to whoever. It runs fine on my BSD (4.2) box, but not on the production server (SunOS 5.6). The error log reports "Failed to connect to mail server: Connection timed out..."
The line in question couldn't be simpler:
Strangely, the following test script works from the command-line. (I can't however, test it from the browser because of the way they enable CGI scripts and I'm just trying to troubleshoot the problem.Ώ]):
I suspect there's a rights issue (e.g. nobody can't run sendmail), however, I'm not sure how to explain this to the "support" team. If it matters, MIME::Lite is v2.111 and perl is 5.6.0 on the production server.
My petitions are:
Thanks in advance...
