    Following these instructions The Perfect Setup - SuSE 10.1 (32-bit)

    Page 5 configure Postfix when I enter:
    postconf -e 'inet interfaces = all'
    The result is:
    fatal: missing '=' after attribute name: "inet interfaces = all"

    Every step of the procedure to this point has been spot on. Can anyone show me where I got off course? This Linux stuff is a strange new world to me.

    The same result on the final command of configure Postfix:
    postconf -e 'tls random source = dev:/dev/urandom'
    fatal: missing '=' after attribute name: "tls random source = dev:/dev/urandom"

    After editing and restarting postfix I am able to connect and the result of ehlo localhost is exactly per the instructions. Thanks for any pointers on this.

    You're missing the underscores. It must be
    postconf -e 'inet[B][COLOR="Red"]_[/COLOR][/B]interfaces = all'
    postconf -e 'tls[B][COLOR="Red"]_[/COLOR][/B]random[B][COLOR="Red"]_[/COLOR][/B]source = dev:/dev/urandom'
