PPTP causes Postfix reload
 
Hi folks,
lately I set up a ubuntu hardy 8.04 server with postfix, clamav, spamassassing with the help of this tutorial (http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual-us...ail-ubuntu8.04) what I found very useful. As a perfect newbi, i could setup a complete mail server in no time. Thank you Falko.
Now it comes my question:
on the same server i also configured a PPTP VPN but every time someone connects to that VPN I get this message in the syslog:

linux postfix/master[5219]: reload configuration /etc/postfix

and on the servers screen I can read: reloading postfix configuration .... done.

I think that there is something conflicting between those programs but i cannot find out where i should look.

Any help is very welcome
Franco

Are there any errors in the mail log?
What are the outputs of
Code:

netstat -tap
and
Code:

ifconfig
?

PPTP causes Postfix reload
 
Hi Falko,

I thank you very much for taking your time at my issue
As you can see from the messages ouput below, I connected to the server using PPTP VPN from 08.48 to 08.50

At login time the server screen showed these messages:
[329654.615881] padlock: VIA PadLock Hash Engine not detected.
Reloading postfix configuration ... ...done.
and after logout:
Reloading postfix configuration ... ...done.

The syslog also contains a warning about padlock_sha, what I also cannot understand. Could be that this is the source of the other issue ?

Now here are the outputs of the log files

Hm, good question why Postfix is reloaded, but I see here: http://marc.info/?l=linux-netdev&m=121157849601121&w=2 that this happens here as well, so maybe this is normal.

The good thing is that it's just a reload, not a restart, so Postfix is not interrupted.

fpizzinini 3rd October 2008 19:43

Oh, I can see.
I thank you for taking your time.
Next week this server will go live.
All the tests went without problems so far, so I hope that there will not be bad surprises.
