Under the paranoid setting at least, gnome-lokkit always attempts to
perform the open relay test through abuse.org This will fail under a
number of circumstances, ranging from not being dialed up to an upstream
router/firewall blocking port 25. While the rules seem to be left in a
working state, the program should at least handle the relay test failing or
being cancelled gracefully.
The rules are done before the test, so you can gracefully quit. I think that bit
is a UI
issue more than a bug as such. The trying relay test when it shouldnt case I can
duplicate and will go and fix. The relay test times out if it cannot connect to
abuse.org. mail-abuse itself should eventually timeout if the connect back
If not then I suspect its their bug but I need to code around it
Gnome Lokkit 0.41 released to fix this
Still fails (as expected), but does allow you to not performe the relaying at
all, and fails and quits gracefully and quickly if it can't resolve.
