Slackware :: Sendmail With Free DynDns - ~/.forward
Jun 23, 2011
I should say that I'm not an expert of linux or sendmail. On my way to learning I'm trying to setup my sendmail server at home using free dydns account(server1.dyndns.org). I can send and receive emails to/from @hotmail, @yahoo, @gmail (the ones I've checked).
Following is access file (access.db created using makemap hash)
Now I'm trying to forward emails coming to my local inbox(email@example.com) to my hotmail account. For this to work, server1 should be able to RELAY messages originated from hotmail.com, so I added hotmail.com entry to access file. Also I've made ~/.forward file:
But the problem is I receive an error message in /var/log/maillog & also a message is sent to root@server1:
I have an Ubuntu Server, a dyndns account and an account with [URL]. My DynDns stuff is all working just great - novo.dyndns.tv is the address. Now I need a domain which I have already bought, to be linked to that machine at [URL] I signed up with freedns.afraid.org and now I am a bit confused at what records to add where. I added a domain - [URL] then setup a webforward as follows: redirect from [URL] and redirect from[URL] to [URL] , however if you go and visit:[URL] you will see my problem! It takes you back to [URL] server and says there is not a webforward setup for [URL]This tells us that the nameservers are all setup fine - and its something in my freedns config which is failing.
i have configured sendmail server in my lan and it is working fine for me.but there is one little problem for me. i want mails send sunita should be received by vinita.sunita and vinita both are normal users on same pc.
for this i made entry in Code: /etc/aliases sunita: vinita
Fetchmail +sendmail played nice together, until I installed hylafax, and added an alias it requires. I just ran the usual makemap command on aliases to make aliases.db, and that's there the trouble began. Fetchmail appeared to hang, at any email account that had email in it, at the RCPT stage. I finally read the warning at the top of /etc/mail/aliases that says to run newaliases.
How to send mail using sendmail on slackware? Can you show me a simple bash program that sends a message to an email? I am new to slackware and I can't send my email using sendmail command. I checked my mail queue on my Webmin and i see this status "access map: lookup [URL]..
I recently tried to upgrade my Slackware server's sendmail software from 8.14.3 to 8.14.4 and ran into a problem. In a nutshell all outbound non local mail is routed through a smart host requiring authentication. As a result I use a modified version of the "sendmail-slackware-tls-sasl-clamav.mc" to build the sendmail.cf. However, when I tried to run sendmail 8.14.4 with my newly created sendmail.cf I was greeted with the following.
Warning: Option: AuthMechanisms requires SASL support (-DSASL) Warning: Option: AuthOptions requires SASL support (-DSASL) Warning: Option: CACertPath requires TLS support Warning: Option: CACertFile requires TLS support
Apparently SSLv2 is now considered weak and the directive is a good idea, but at present this directive is not supported by the sendmail in this package.
im just wondering is it possible to instruct mailx to use postfix instead of sendmail while have sendmail and postfix installed? like system-switch-mail way in other distros. basically i would like to be able to use mailx when i uninstall sendmail and keep postfix only installed, so i dont get msg after i press . to send email from mailx
Code: /usr/sbin/sendmail: No such file or directory
So I'm having troubles setting up a mail server. First of all, anyone want to try to telnet into <snip> on port 25 and see if it's blocked? I don't think it is, but you never know. How long does it usually take for MX records to get around? I've had this set up for about a day now and still don't see any MX records on any lookup site I go to. I'm currently using slackware 12.2's default sendmail configuration. Should I change anything? I started sendmail on my laptop and got emails going within the LAN but I cannot send emails over WAN (i.e. to/from yahoo or google accounts).e?
It seems my sendmail (running in slackware 13.0) cannot send out emails correctly. I guess I need to tell it what is the smtp server to use. And, I heard, gmail's smtp server is available to use for this purpose. How to configure my sendmail this way?
I'm configuring sendmail that runs on Linux Slackware but find some difficulties to do some quick startup due to its complexity and massive documentation. Suppose I want to configure a sendmail that can serve 2 domains: ethereal1m.no-ip.com ethereal2m.no-ip.com
I use noip2 client software to connect with noip server that translates the dynamic IP addressed domains, setups POP, and does forwarding. By having 2 domains, I want to able to send email between firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com;therefore, my machine acts as both a server and a client. How can I setup sendmail so that it acts as both server and client? How to register email address and its domain on sendmail?
Built an MTA/LDA Slackware Server and seperate MDA (Dovecot 2.2) Slackware Server. Used the slackwiki Sendmail TLS SMTP-AUTH guide for the MTA/LDA Server.
http://www.slackwiki.org/index.php?t...TH&redirect=no The ../cf/cf/sendmail-slackware-tls-sasl.mc config file has Procmail sorting as: FEATURE(`local_procmail',`',`procmail -t -Y -a $h -d $u')dnl
I don't understand the arguments ($), but know the -Y forces mbox. The /var/mail directory is hardlinked to where ever the spool directory is. I want the Dovecot MDA server to use NFS or UNFS to grab user's mail from the MTA/LDA Server. Problem is the hardlink. Can't nfs share a hardlinked directory.
Is there a way to change the MTA sendmail mc config file above to have LDA promail send to /home/mail, so I can nfs that directory? And preferably in MAILDIR format? BTW: I can't find any procmailrc config file on this Slackware Server. I should have all the settings in my /etc/mail/sendmail.cf config.
I am using webmin for my daily tasks. I have fedora 13, whenever I click on ''Sendmail M4 Configuration'' or Outgoing Addresses (generics)'' I get the following error message
The Sendmail M4 configuration base directory /usr/share/sendmail-cf was not found on your system, or is not the correct directory. Maybe it has not been installed (common for packaged installs of Sendmail), or the module config is incorrect. I read documentation at sendmail.org, it seems that structure of directories for send mail has been changed in version sendmail-8.1.4 shipped with FC13. In webmin config module we have
Sendmail M4 base directory = /usr/share/sendmail-cf
which is not there. I did a locate / sendmail-cf on the command line, it finds nothing
I am trying to set up a simple sendmail smtp relay server but I am having some problems. It is a apt-get Debian package install. First, no matter what I do to the access or access.db files sendmail still starts seemingly with no changes. If I delete or rename access.db it still starts. If I type gibberish into the access file and try to remake access.db with 'make access.db' it still creates a new file with no warnings! Second, I do not know exactly what to put into the access file to make it do what I want it to do, even if sendmail did pay attention to my changes. What I want it to do is to not accept any incoming mail at all, and relay mail from three different domains, and preferably only from a single email address in each of them. It also must not pay any attention to the IP of the computer it is relaying from.
I recently modified sendmail.cf to use a third party SMTP server to send emails. It works great. But when I run sendmail from the command line, I have to specify the -C flag and force feed it the location of my sendmail.cf, or else it doesn't work.
So in other words, the following works great:
However, if I don't specify the -C flag, sendmail doesn't consider what's in the sendmail.cf and barfs:
I don't run sendmail as a daemon. I'm only using it to send emails. I know my modifications of sendmail.cf are correct because it works perfectly when I use the -C flag. I searched my disk to see if I could find another sendmail.cf on the machine and only the one in /etc/mail came up.
Why sendmail is not reading my sendmail.cf?
I'm running Sendmail version 8.14.2 on Fedora Core 8.
During playing around sources, synaptic playing I messed up the default list. I know I should have been more careful. Anyways could someone tell me what the default the default sources.list that has free and non free etc for squueze please? I have been trying to get the default list but I cannot find it anywhere. There are alot of lists out there but nothing tagged like the "default" list.
I've got a question on free disk space. I'm currently running CentOS 5.5 on in Xenserver virtual environment. We've had an issue with disk space. My question is as follows: - from a ssh connection i run df -h this gives the value of 90% used leaving me with 9GB. If I use system monitor via a VNC connection the free disk space value is 20GB free on the same volume. Which one is correct? I do use SNMP to monitor the same volume and should alert me when < 10% is free I know this works as I set the alert threshold to < 90% I get an alert.
I am trying to remotely update my dyndns using the commandwget --no-cache h ttp //$USR:$PWD@$DYN_HOST/nic/update hostname=$HST&myip=$MY_IP(the h ttp : // is because I can't post links yet...)when "MY_IP" is my remote computer's ip,but the dyndns seems to ignore this parameter.. It updates the "real" ip that I have in the computer that running that command..I read previous threads an saw that someone used --no-cacheSo I tried that and it did not work for me.
I have setup a web server, ftp, ssh with ubuntu server which is working with phpmyadmin and webmin installed with it as well. (I am considering upgrading to 10.04LTS when it comes out)
However I cant get to my website with the domain name that I am using from dyndns. From on my LAN I can get to my server but using it ip address (10.10.0.200) and it work fine with ssh and ftp as well. But when I try my public address or my name it does not work. I am using IE8 as I am using a windows machine. Out side the network the domain name wont work at all, but I tried my public address and everything worked perfectly.
I have recently installed ddclient to see if had made any difference but no luck. But I am keeping it there as it is working and updating my ip address.
I have ubuntu 9.10 and using dyndns by apt-get install ddclient but when my internet disconnect and my real ip changed it wont update automatically i have to go to computer and type in terminal ddclient then it get update ....is there any way to get it update automatically.
How should I set up my webserver when using dyndns?My server lives behind a private router, and I opened a nonstandard port for it (xxx.dyndns.org:6789)I need to be able to access the webserver both from behind the router, and from outside. But espescially wordpress needs to have a defined specific site-url for each site, which I can not get working both inside and outside the router. Inside I now just just the local ip-number, which works ok. To access the server from outside, I have to redefine the site-url to "xxx.dyndns.org:6789", but then it is not accessible from behind the router.
Am I asking too much for a FREE OS? Everybody spend their precious time to help others, that's very helpful.But it seems like there is no support from UBUNTU team,how could we even get through the barrier of not using Microsoft's OSes? No free lunch of course, but it seems to me some issues have never really been solved.I read lot's of people have problem with their WIFI, not just for my OLD USB wifi adapter. I don't have problem with WIFI in XP/Server.
I posted here and there, and seems like no answer, and I do not get any reply from UBUNTU support team,forgive me if I run out of google's keywords.I just need a simple answer, is my WIFI going to work in UBUNTU with a layman effort? I like linux and UBUNTU had put great effort in providing me such a great OS, but if a basic internet connection will need to spent sooo much time to setup, and it still doesn't work. IS IT WORTH to switch to UBUNTU at all
I have a registered account with DynDns, and every month I am sent a reminder that my account will expire because it is not in use (i.e. inactive). I think the problems stems from my system's inability to register itself on a periodic basis using ddclient. This is the error I am getting:
Code: Mar 4 06:53:09 iceland ddclient: WARNING: cannot connect to checkip.dyndns.org:80 socket: IO::Socket::INET: Bad hostname 'checkip.dyndns.org' When I ping 'checkip.dyndns.org', I do so successfully. I can also connect to its port 80 (using a port-scanner application I developed). So why the error? I get the same error message every 5 minutes. I have a Fedora 9 OS. Below is the relevant portion of my /etc/ddclient.conf file (with the username and password changed for security purposes):
Code: ... ## To obtain an IP address from Web status page (using the proxy if defined) use=web, web=checkip.dyndns.org/, web-skip='IP Address' # found after IP Address ... Somehow I feel that the contents of /etc/hosts may be responsible for the error, but I'm not sure.
Code: # Do not remove the following line, or various programs # that require network functionality will fail. 127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost iceland.localdomain iceland ::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost My system's name is 'iceland'.
Is it possible to open dyndns port at iptables?I have a remote server which is cenots 5.5 x86 and uses iptable rules. And my local pc is windows 7 x64 and have a dyndns address as mypc.dyndns.org.I want to connect local pc with mypc.dyndns.org to remote server with iptable rules as follows.Quote:
# Xmanager -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 6000:6010 -s mypc.dyndns.org -j ACCEPT
If you are running a home server/website, and want a domain name, currently you can use dyndns and others etc. to get a free one and use that so people can find you by name. So my question is, can it be done on your home server without having to use eg dyndns or others.
I do not know a lot about Ubuntu Servers, but I made one. I wanted to set up a web server using Apache and DynDNS. So far, I have created an account on dyndns.com and installed apache. I also installed another program (i dont remember the name) that had something to do with DynDNS. Right now, I can access the page on my server by using eLinks (text based web browser) and going to the address (myaddress.dyndns.org). If I try to access it from any other computer, I get a page that says 'Unable to Connect'.
I've recently set up an Ubuntu server and from within the network I can do several things like: log in via SSH, transfer files via FTP, and remotely control Torrents from other computers. My end goal is to be able to access these services by using my dyndns hostname (example.dyndns.org)from an external network.
When I type my dyndns name in my web browser it opens up my router page. How would I set things up so that I can just type my dyndns hostname to point directly to my server, instead of the router page?
All computers are connected to a router which is connected to an ADSL modem, with automatically assigned I.P addresses.
