Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Running: Ubuntu 12.10 32bits server version.

I'm trying to connect to the saslauthd and getting the error I mentioned on the title (permission denied).

$ /usr/sbin/testsaslauthd -u myuser -p mypassword

connect() : Permission denied

However when I try to connect as root (sudo), it connects successfully.

I need to be able to connect as a user.

Any thought?
