Got my problem fixed by going into firewall and opening up port 23. Thanks.

Scratch what I said about blocking port 25.... PORT 23 is the one you want to unblock...
Sorry about that...
Sounds like PC-cillin is more than just anti-virus software. Sounds like it has a built in firewall as well. I'm not familiar with PC-cillin myself but look in the documentation where it references something about a firewall or port blocking. What you're looking for is to be able to tell the software to not block traffic on port 25.
After changing to a new anti-virus software (PC-cillin), I find that now I cannot access the DX spots via Telnet. I had been using Norton's anti-virus program and the Telnet and DX spots functioned perfectly. My Internet access is fine -- after uninstalling Norton's and the old Sygate firewall.
Now, as long as Telnet is activated, there seems to be a conflict because ACLog 2.8 will take 30 seconds or so to come up on the screen. When I try to open
a port, I get this error message, "Connection is forcefully rejected." I am using port 23 for Telnet to dxspots.com.
When I click "Done," it takes 30 seconds or so to return to the normal log screen -- and only part of the log is displayed during that time. So it sure seems like a conflict has arisen.
Thoughts on a solution?
