    Hi folks,


    Network
    Server-1 a working LAMP server

    Server-2 a newly built LAMP server
    loval IP - 192.168.0.52 (without port forwarded )


    Server 2
    Ubuntu 6.05 drake amd65

    SquirrelMail 2:1.4.6
    uw-imapd 7:2002edebian
    uw-imapd-ssl 7:2002edebian


    the building of Server-2 has been completed.

    It can send emails.
    It can also receive emails if with port 25 forwarded to its local IP

    2 imap2 and no plain imap ?

    do you have multiple NIC or IP addresses ?
    if so, is the imap and squirrel listening to the correct one?

    Hi chipsafts,


    I have no idea which package generate imap2?


    Whether you meant imap4? Neither I have idea which package provides it.


    Only one NIC and one public IP. I'm testing the LAMP server on local network.


    I think it may be a bug on uw-imapd
    Code:
    Plain text logins are not enabled. See bugs 227709, 239537, 273687.

    Are you sure that this is uw-imapd?
    Code:
    tcp        0      0 *:imap2                 *:*                     LISTEN     3881/cyrmaster
    cyrmaster is the process that controls all of the Cyrus processes.

    Hi falko,


    Referring to the notes taken down on building this LAMP server I found an unfinished test on 2-factors One Time Password on SquirrelMail.


    Ah I think the problem is here. I have installed cyrus-imapd-2.2 as well as SquirrelMail at that time.


    Now on running "apt-cache policy cyrus-imapd-2.2" I can't found it. Would it be removed automatically when I installed uw-imapd later?


    Could you please shed me some light. What shall I do if I need retaining cyrus-imapd-2.2 to complete the test on One Time Password?


    I installed following packages;

    uw-imapd
    uw-imapd-ssl
    uw-mailutils
    gamin
    ipopd
    ipopd-ssl
    libc-client-dev

    creating /etc/c-client.cf
    ???

    TIA

    I think uw-imapd is controlled by inetd. Can you post your /etc/inetd.conf?

    $ cat /etc/inetd.conf
    Code:
    imap2   stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/imapd
    imaps   stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/imapd
    pop3    stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/ipop3d
    pop3s   stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/ipop3d

    Can you try to stop the cyrmaster process and restart inetd?

    $ sudo /etc/init.d/cyrus2.2 stop
    Code:
    Stopping Cyrus IMAPd: cyrmaster.
    

    $ sudo netstat -tap | grep imap2
    No printout


    $ sudo /etc/init.d/inetd restart
    No printout


    $ sudo netstat -tap | grep imap2
    $ sudo netstat -tap | grep imap
    Both also no printout


    SquirrelMail still fails to login
    Code:

    $ tail /var/log/mail.log

    $ sudo /etc/init.d/dovecot restart

    How about uninstalling the cyrus and the uw-imap,
    then reinstalling just the uw-imap

    Hi chipsafts,


    Thanks for your advice.


    I have an unfinished test "One Time Password". Because I can't locate cyrus-imapd-utils and cyrus-sasl on Ubuntu repo I stopped there after installing cyrus-imapd. Then I continued setup SquirrelMail.


    I'm considering erasing following packages;
    uw-imapd
    uw-imapd-ssl
    uw-mailutils
    gamin
    ipopd
    ipopd-ssl
    libc-client-dev
    etc.

    which were installed on setup SquirrelMail and retaining cyrus-imapd. Because I need it to finish my pending test "One Time Password".


    I'll make some search first before moving my next step. Thanks
