Slackware :: Lightweight MTA Without Network Capabilities Just For Receiving Local Administration Emails?
May 19, 2010
I was wondering if anyone could recommend a way a very lightweight MTA without network capabilities just for receiving local administration emails?I know I could restrict access, I was just wondering if there was something more lightweight designed purely for local use.
I recently setup a mailserver on ubuntu server. I am able to send emails correctly. However, no emails show up when sent to me on this server. I can send emails to myself on the server but not outside email like yahoo.com or gmail or any other emails can reach me. My MX and A record appear to have been set up correctly. My router seems to receive hits when I receive emails. When I check the logs of the router it tells me that there was a remote attempt to send traffic to the router forwarded to the server but I don't see this traffic in any mailbox. When I do pingability.com for my site, I get the following error message:Error There was a problem while talking with the mail server. Got 'Socket Timeout Exception: connect timed out' So somehow, the email traffic seems to get to my router and my router appears to forward it to my server but it does timeout.
One of our postfix servers is for sending/receiving internal emails only. When a user entered a wrong recipient address, it will take almost an hour for the user to get the "Recipient address rejected" email. What can be done to let the user get the "Recipient address rejected" email quickier.
i am in the process of setting up my wonderful slackware system on my laptop, and now i would like to make sure i am able to run as much multimedia as possible (to be up to snuff in this realm with mac and windows users). i am running slackware x86_64 version 13.0 with a full install (but only with the software sets a, ap, d, f, k, kde, l, n, x, xap, y) and have installed flash-player-plugin from slackbuilds.org.
recently i stumbled upon this website: [url] it explains precisely what i would like to know: which packages should i install to get a fully-featured multimedia slackware install (and in which order should i build/install these packages to take care of dependencies). i emailed the author to make sure this guide was up to date with slackware 13, but, sadly, it is not. it seems that mr. anderson uses slackware 12.2, and thus there may be inconsistencies between what this guide explains and what works on the newest slackware. for example, mplayerplug-in has been depreciated in favor of gecko-mediaplayer. i need to know if more of this has happened. i would simply test it myself, but i have been distro-hopping reinstalling repeatedly over the past few weeks for various reasons, and i am trying to avoid dirtying up my system too much and having to reinstall yet again.
so i ask of you, does mr. anderson's list apply to slackware 13.0, or are there any changes that need to be made? i ask because someone here may have already used this guide and may be willing to share their knowledge and experience on it. eric's vlc slackbuild is very interesting, and i plan to run that, so vlc and its dependencies are covered. my multimedia needs are not too demanding, but i do expect web media to work flawlessly. i often visit www.apple.com and watch movie trailers, guided tours, etc., so i need quicktime videos on the web to work. videos and online flash games already work fine with flash-player-plugin. i also visit some web sites that have windows media formats being streamed (.wmv and .wma).
I have a problem with my slackware 13.1 that is that i can�t access it outside my local network. It�s running behind a router and i have activated the DMZ to my slackware computer i can access the web with my slackware computer but i can�t get access to it outside my LAN.
I just set up my firewall, and now I can't see any Samba workgroups. It says it can't find any workgroups on my local network, and it may be caused by a firewall. It is a firewall issue because if I disable my firewall, I can see the workgroup. What do I need to open on my firewall to see the workgroup? I am using Slackware64 13.37.
Here is how I set up my firewall.
Code: iptables -P INPUT DROP iptables -P FORWARD DROP iptables -A INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT iptables -A INPUT -s 127.0.0.0/8 -d 127.0.0.0/8 -i lo -j ACCEPT iptables -A INPUT -p icmp -j ACCEPT I got the commands from here url.
fedora 14 changed .thunderbird folder, copy and pasted old localfolders with emails This is the location of old emails /home/Michael/.thunderbird/ik7sjy71.default/Mail/Local Folders/Archives.sbd Buy, thunderbird can not read old emails in local folders. Want to keep old emails stored in local folders that I have before making change.
I used to have this setup on an old server and i'm trying to move it to a new server.I have a new box installed with Ubuntu 10.10, sendmail, courier-imap and courier-pop.I've configured virtusertable/local-host-names/virtual-domains/sendmail.cf and such.Everything is set up to take any mail arriving to @mydomain.com and move it to a user called "mobileinbox".When i log in as mobileinbox (su mobileinbox) and check my inbox using mutt, i see all the e-mails , but when i login from the outside using pop3 or imap , it says i have no new emails.
The only things i need out of it are: mars_nwe (Netware server under Linux) and a reverse telnet server (the dos machine is a bbs) I need the virtual server to support a very old dos machine, and while i COULD use samba for drive mapping, the VNC server I'm useing on the dos machine is a progrm called TINY which pretty much means i'm stuck useing the novell dos network stack.
how best to configure opensuse for this? I'm running the install off of the live-dvd which has quite a bit selected by default. I'm not in need of an x-server or a desktop manager, as this will be a set it up and forget about it once it works VM
I just installed Slackware 13 with xfce and everything went well (eventually). At first, my wireless didn't work, but then I found /etc/rc.d/rc.wireless.conf. Everything was working, and I was happily surfing and downloading packages.But then one day... It just stopped! I tried to ping google, and it could send packets but not receive them.I'm connecting through an unlocked network in my building, so I guess it's DHCP (thats what i set it up with the first time 'round
I can't seem to get Remote Administration (vnc) working for the life of me. I tried the ip4/ip6 fix and every other work around I could find. I simply can't figure things out. I can't say I'm new to Linux but I can say that I am quite new to openSuse and the RPM world in general. My actual error isn't much of an error but that of the vnc window just being a black window that eventually times out.
As of now I access and configure the box vis ssh.I'm using:
openSuse 11.3 Gnome Desktop Installed from gnome live CD
I'd like a way to see all of the devices on my local network and what their local IP address is. I recall that I used wireshark to troubleshoot a similar problem a while back, but it doesn't seem to have a way to see all of the devices- only the traffic. (I'd like to do this without having to physically interface with my router if possible, and I am in an encrypted network if that matters)
I have installed a web server on my local network. Everything is well configured and web pages are shown correctly from Internet (outside the local network) using the domain or the public IP.The issue is if I try to see that web pages (using the domain or the public IP) from inside the local network. In that case the router config page (192.168.1.1) is shown instead of the web pages.From inside the local network I'm only able to see the web pages using the internal IP address (192.168.1.XX).
I have a desklet that, occasionally after toying with network stuff, will tell me that large amounts of data are being sent/received. What's a good way to determine what processes are occupying these resources?!
We know that, in a network, data transfer time is dependent on capacity of the receiving node. I have two Linux systems A (sender) and B (receiver) connected. I want to simulate congetion in a network, that means I want to increse the time taken to transfer some data. I believe, I can do this if I can reduce the capacity of the receiver node B. That perhaps possible by decreasing the receiving buffer size of B. How can I change the receiving buffer size of this linux system B?
I've got an Ubuntu server hosting our websites and other various things here in our own home. We recently switched to a router that doesn't support loopback (abomination), so I've set up hosts files on our computers so we can access our own sites when on our home LAN.
However, we often take our laptops as we travel about, and I'm guessing due to the hosts files when we try to access our sites, it'll look on whatever local network we're connected to for our server, which won't work, obviously.
Is there a way to set up something like a hosts file that'll only try to look up the local IP of the server when we're on a specific network (our home one), or have one that tries to look for the local IP first, then proceeds to try and resolve the domain name and use the external IP if the local IP doesn't work?
Would it be possible/advisable to add a note to the security emails if an updated package is also part of the multilib install? I know with this last round of updates, seamonkey-solibs and cups are a part of multilib. I snagged the 32bit versions, converted them, and upgraded. It's kind of hard to keep track of which packages are a part of multilib.
I want to be able to access my email account from the console. I'm reading all day about fetchmail, postfix, sendmail etc. but all the stuff I found is related to building whole mail system. All I want to do is to read my emails and write some. Which is the painless way to do this? I successfully configured Evolution for this purpose but I want to do that from the console.
I have b43 wireless. In network Configuration on system->administration the interface it appears as inactive it appers in hardware also as b43 associated to wlan0 but i cannot have access to any wireless network. What i have to do to put this b43 to work.
I have done several attempts to build a local mirror of Salckware 13.0. There are two problems: I have to wait very long for a connection, they appear error during a connection which broke it so I have to restart. Is there any other way to build mirror? I am using Alien Bob scripts. Never before happened something like that. The connections with common web pages (google, etc) work well. Maybe I should look for some other mirror than those listed in mirror-slackware-current.sh.
I just installed open Suse 11.3, and I cannot SSH my school. Upon further investigation I could not even ping any machines outside my local area network. Ironically I could nmap machines outside my local area network.
I'm working with a Ubuntu 10.04 LTS system with two network interfaces (both Ethernet). I wish to setup this system such that it is simultaneously connected to my local and an OpenVPN network and able direct traffic between the connections depending on what program is sending the traffic. The problem: Under my current OpenVPN configuration all network traffic is directed to the VPN.
In practice, I would like OpenVPN to operate out of one of my two network interfaces and leave the other interface connected to the local network. Then by default all network traffic should be directed to my local network unless I specify (on a per program bases) that certain traffic should go though the VPN. These two network connections can (should) stay completely independent of each other and do not need to talk to each other.
I have a mac and an openSUSE box connected wirelessly to a router. From my mac, if I ping the Linux machine by both ip address and hostname "elmo.local", I get a response. If I ping my mac from the Linux machine using its ip address, I get a response. However, if I ping the mac from the Linux box using its name "kermit.local" - nothing!
This means in order to share files between them via the network, I have to use the ip address rather than name, but I'd rather not. When I had Ubuntu installed instead of openSUSE this all worked fine out of the box, so I'm assuming it's a problem with the setup of openSUSE rather than the router or the mac.
Yhe only ptoblem was that he had forgotten the password to his network. This was really anoying and has happened before sp yesterday i decided to install some kind of WEP cracking tool so that it would not happen anymore.. After using sometime without getting anything to work i found this tutorial: [URL]
and started following it. i only got to the point where he has updated his computer using update manager and is about to patch his wificard. Then i noticed that the network manager for gnome was gone and the virtualbox logo in my top panel was changed to a red circle with a line running through it. I have tried to download network manager from another computer and installing it on my laptop but it needs internet to install. Then i tried to connect to my local network using terminal that did't work either i also tried connecting using a cable but had no luck connecting. The command iwconfig gives me:
