    Is the required port open? 25 I think

    i have opened port 25 to test

    Also if it were to be a port issue, I don't think you would get an object error. It would just request the send & it would die in use because it's UDP. The service does not bind the port.

    But port 25 is also assuming pop. If you running tls, or any type of encryption, then the port will change.
  5. In Topic: what does it cost?

    Yes, I work for peanuts and it is insulting at times.

    Look elsewhere for work.

    Not sure, but it feels like you're asking here, for confirmation.

    For what it's worth, I run a pc repair shop, with multiple employees. Our first employee technician I was able to pay (a squeek above) minimum wage, because that's what the business could afford. When he found out that I was previously paying (a friend that we'll call) a contractor to do logic board soldering he expected the same rate ontop of his minimum wage. Part of the reason for me hiring him was because he said in his interview that he had this skill set & thus it actually would cost the shop less to perform the same repairs.

    I gave him the option to keep his job that he was hired to do, or leave. He stayed, wasn't happy, did a piss poor job & was let go.

    My advice to you, if you are unhappy with pc repair work & want to be a programmer, then reach for the stars & follow your heart. But you can't expect there to be money where there isn't. If you are paid by the hour, the work may change but your pay will not. To make the money you after, it will be in your best interest (imo) to change employers, or change careers (from a repair tech to a developer), or start freelancing.

    Just one more thing, I may have missed the point of the question initially... there isn't really a 'general' charge, as the programming languages used, the location, & the industry all have defining factors in the rate to charge the client. If it's too high, then the client has the opportunity to say no, argue for a lower rate, or shop elsewhere.
