OpeneSuSE 11.1: FSOCKOPEN Connection Timed Out

I have a php mail application that I am running in apache.

I’m having it use a mail server that has been up for years. The application is not able to connect to the mail server.

The developer put a test.php that uses fsockopen to connect to my mail server. It returns the error “Connection Timed Out”.

I’m able to ping my mail server just fine from there. I found sites that talk about the command “setsebool -P httpd_can_network_connect 1”…but that command doesnt seem to work.

Any ideas?
