Default Should i take into consideration the comments made?

Hi,

should i take into consideration the comments made for this howt-to: http://www.howtoforge.com/the-perfec...unty-jackalope

when i mean take into consideration, i mean follow the steps mentioned in the comments... and howtoforge says:

"Please do not use the comment function to ask for help! If you need help, please use our forum. Comments will be published after administrator approval."

If these comments have been approved by an administrator, why does the administrator of howtoforge doesn't writes (or updates) the how-to taking the comments into consideration and putting them in proper order? If i am not wrong, these how-to have been written for "linux newbies", i am stuck with these how to, i don't know which comment to take into consideration, or which one to ignore.

If anyone has successfully get the spamsnake work with any kind of tweaks, please send me the steps required in proper order on kavish@servihoo.net..

Thanks...

You should follow the how-to. When you come across an issue, if any, then you should post a question here and someone will help you, if not already answered in the comments.

The how-to was written as I was doing the install. If something has changed or has been updated, I would not know unless I were to do a new install. I'll setup a vm and do a new install to address any changes that should be made. I'll update the guide accordingly.

Hi,

Thank you for your prompt reply! i will wait for an updated doc.

Correct me if i am wrong, i will be using the spamsnake for my domain name servihoo.net in the following scenario... i have a lotus domino server which in france with ip address 94.125.163.161.

i wil point my mx record to "raptor.servihoo.net"(66.160.197.66) which is the spamsnake, then after filtering emails, it should relay clean emails to my domino server which is 94.125.163.161, using the following commands on postfix

postconf -e "transport_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/transport"

Create /etc/postfix/transport and add the following:

servihoo.net smtp:[94.125.163.161]

On lotus domino there is a setting under "incoming smtp" which is "prevent these hosts from anti-relay check" and here i'll put the spamsnake ip address i.e 66.160.197.66

now i wish the domino server to send emails through the spamsnake, under domino again there is a setting for "use relay-host mta", and under it i'll put the spamsnake ip address i.e 66.160.197.66

is there any settings under the spamsnake that will allow my domino to send emails through it?

here is the scenario for incoming emails


emails ---->> filter through spamsnake (66.160.197.66) ----> relay clean emails to domino (94.125.163.161)

outgoing emails

lotus notes users emails -----> lotus domino server -----> relay the emails to the spamsnake (66.160.197.66)

Below is what you're looking for to use the spamsnake as an outbound relay.

mynetworks:
If you'd like your SpamSnake to handle outgoing emails as well, be sure to add your local network to the list e.g. 192.168.0.0/24 172.16.0.0/16. If your mailserver is 172.16.5.20 and you only want to trust only that IP, add 172.16.5.20/32. You just have to setup your mailserver to relay (smarthost) to your SpamSnake.

Edit your main.cf and add the ip of your domino server to the above string.

This person, cb1kenobi, a registered user here on the org has used the guide on a 64bit system. The only difference that I know of was the dcc configuration. You should shoot him a private message to find out if he had to do anything different. I highly doubt it though.
