No firewall. But im on a root server at a server farm so -maybe-. But I run things on all sorts of weird ports with no issues so I think its more stupid then that, even though having a firewalled port is pretty dense.
I'm gonna let my brain cool off and stop smoldering and reinstall from scratch now that I'm a bit more clued in.
I will also check on the port by running something else on that port once I fully uninstall dcc to confirm the port is open.
I'm sure it's a really stupid thing I did wrong. I'm so used to "sh configure - make - make install" with zero extra effort this one caught me off guard and I had to go find some seldom used brain cells. The second install I will be using my brain and not on auto pilot.
So stupid question... If I'm running dccm as a milter that's all I need ?, I don't need to be running dccd right ?.
Any way permissions or file modes coulda caused this same error ?

I want to start simple and then I will wade into more complex configurations like running dccd.
I have a well cultivated spamtrap I have used for nothing but spam for 3 years and I want to feed this into the system and help fight the spam wars. I will figure out the dcc system.

That says dccm can't get any response from any of the available DCC servers.

That says cdcc can't get any response from any of the available DCC servers.

The first thing I'd check is for a firewall filtering UDP packets to and/or from remote port 6277.
