Thread: Domain, DNS is it possible

  1. #21

    Re: Domain, DNS is it possible

    Well, your /etc/sysconfig/network file shouldn't have the .com at the end of your hostname.

    When using courier, it doesn't care about the local settings, it works off of virtual servers. YOU tell courier what to send mail out as, and what not. Has nothing to do with local settings.

    I've infact, found it much easier to name the box something completely different than the website hosted on it, or the email sent from it. Just to save local routing headaches....

    Re: Domain, DNS is it possible

    I tried to install it but it looks like I am missing some stuff

    Before I made the user COURIER the only user on the computer was ROOT because I am the only user so I am not really positive how to setup a user for courier correctly

    Anyways, I made a user name COURIER and gave it the exact settings as ROOT. When I tried to install it this is what I got

    [courier@pac10fans courier]$ ls
    courier-0.37.2.20020215.tar.gz
    [courier@pac10fans courier]$ mkdir $HOME/rpm
    [courier@pac10fans courier]$ mkdir $HOME/rpm/SOURCES
    [courier@pac10fans courier]$ mkdir $HOME/rpm/SPECS
    [courier@pac10fans courier]$ mkdir $HOME/rpm/BUILD
    [courier@pac10fans courier]$ mkdir $HOME/rpm/SRPMS
    [courier@pac10fans courier]$ mkdir $HOME/rpm/RPMS
    [courier@pac10fans courier]$ mkdir $HOME/rpm/RPMS/i686
    [courier@pac10fans courier]$ mkdir $HOME/rpm/RPMS/athlon
    [courier@pac10fans courier]$ echo "%_topdir $HOME/rpm" >> $HOME/.rpmmacros
    [courier@pac10fans courier]$ mkdir $HOME/rpm/RPMS/i386
    [courier@pac10fans courier]$ echo "%_topdir $HOME/rpm" >> $HOME/.rpmmacros
    [courier@pac10fans courier]$ rpm -ta courier-0.37.2.20020215.tar.gz
    error: failed build dependencies:
    openssl-perl is needed by courier-0.37.2.20020215-1.7.2
    expect is needed by courier-0.37.2.20020215-1.7.2
    [courier@pac10fans courier]$

    Where can I get this and am I on the right track

    Re: Domain, DNS is it possible

    I installed those two dependencies and it worked. *It built about 13 RPM;s in the i386 (/home/courier/rpm/RPMMS/i386) folder

    I have an athlon xp 1700 plus CPU and am using the RH athlon kernel which I think is based on the i686 format, is it ok that it built i386 RPM's

    Athlon IS i386. i386 refer to CPU types.

    This is for use with LDAP. Just like with IMAP, remove it if you are not using LDAP stuff.... ( LDAP is that you can once authorize and users not need to authorize through out your network )

    Re: Domain, DNS is it possible

    Close but not quite.

    The sendmail wrapper is mainly just a couple of symlinks to make your box think it still has sendmail, but it just links up to courier's binaries instead. It does NOT use sendmail as it's base.

    Yes, you can have either POP3, OR imap, or BOTH of them, depending on what you want to offer.

    LDAP != imap, it's just another way for users to auth. IMAP, POP3, or smtp auth logins can be validated through the LDAP system.


    Best way to install these, first rpm -e sendmail, THEN place all the peices of it that you want to use in one directory, by them selves, and as root, rpm -ivh *

    then you can edit your various /etc/courier/ configuration files, and finally, start it with: service courier start

    Okay.

    Yes, you can have either POP3, OR imap, or BOTH of them, depending on what you want to offer.
    Yes, I know that. My question is how do you get only one of them installed instead of both of them?? Just remove it before you installed them?? Or before you make RPM for it??

    LDAP != imap, it's just another way for users to auth. *IMAP, *POP3, or smtp auth logins can be validated through the LDAP system.
    Oh, I know LDAP!= IMAP. What I meant to say was that just like he did with IMAP, if he is not needed to use LDAP, remove the same way as he did with IMAP.

    Best way to install these, first rpm -e sendmail, THEN place all the peices of it that you want to use in one directory, by them selves, and as root, rpm -ivh *
    If it's one RPM package, how can he remove it? Or is it actually 13 RPMs?? Sorry, I've never tried it. And also, if you do not orginally have Sendmail, then all you have to do is install it, right??

    then you can edit your various /etc/courier/ *configuration files, and finally, start it with: *service courier start
    Great. Thanks for the heads up. I'm thinking of installing it on my Debian server box...

    Re: Domain, DNS is it possible

    He just built rpm's out of it, there are 13 rpm's, nothing is actually installed yet. All he has to do is not install the imap or the pop rpm.

    Debian will be a different process. I *think* there are some debian pkg's for it, but from the mailing list, there seems to be issues with it, and you would be better off compiling it by hand, (or using Red Hat)</shameless plug>

    And no, Courier is a COMPLETE replacement for sendmail No sendmail? no problem. Install the sendmail wrapper, and it *looks* like you have it, so certian scripts and stuff still function, but it's just Courier....

    Re: Domain, DNS is it possible

    Ah, great, thanks.

    I will be installing on Debian from source ( of course ) but I was just wondering about RPM also since I might try that on Red Hat box ( on my test platform ).
    What I meant by not having send mail is that "if I do not orginally have Sendmail, then all I have to do is install Courier-MTA directly without sendmail".

    Re: Domain, DNS is it possible




    Are you sure about this? *I have RoadRunner and I have apache serving webpages on port 80. *Maybe its different for different parts of the country *???
    I am sure. I think it has to do with the Nimda and Code Red bullshit. They sent me an announcement about some lame new security garbage. I dont recall the exact content of the message, but now I cant use any standard server prots other than the 1024 + range. At first I thought it was my router being a snot, but when I jacked my modem right into my system, I still had the issues. As of now I am using some port in the Quake3 server port range. I am just dicking with apache, nothing real.

    BTW, what area are you in? I am from Milwaukee, WI on wi.rr.com
