This is a firewall problem. You need to configure the firewall
on the new machine to allow incoming SMTP connections on port 25.
However, that is a subject that is completely outside the scope of
this mailing list.
When it comes to operating-system specific issues like firewall
configurations, there's not much we can do to help you. You need to
use the mailing lists, newsgroups, and other support services that
are specific to those OSes.
