  1. SMTP AUTH allows relaying for senders who have successfully authenticated themselves. The pop-before-smtp project is a simple daemon written in Perl, to allow email relay control based on successful POP or IMAP logins it's still relaying you've allowed it by login and so, it's not open to the whole world . if email is sent by joe@blow.com not on your lan and uses your smtp server "smtp.relayaway.com" and it's addressed to you@guessedit.com...... it's been relayed . Relaying email will get you on a reject list
  2. what email client are you using ? i just finished installing servers this morning on 10.2 2005LE . i haven't noticed how email is working yet . i'll let you know. i did run into this problem a while back but i forget what took care of it. when you send out email you're not really sending through your mandrake smtp right ? i mean when you are at work you send out via their outgoing smtp . you'll find your email getting rejected if you send out via your smtp and are behind/connected to an ISP because that is relaying, and if it works every spammer in the world will be sending out from your smtp server
  3. LPI over RH 10 yrs ago I took my first certification test and got my ass handed to me on a platter. get practice exams any cert is better than none and remember these tests have close to ZERO to do with real life situations

  5.

  8. uh? i don't understand... <{POST_SNAPBACK}> they are not going to sell computers you don't need a computer to do the things most people do online you need : internet connection (high-speed) display keyboard / touch screen a sun ray client type thing some kind of google / ajax / xul backend and the browser becomes the OS they don't want to make or sell the thing they just want to be thing that makes the thing work . at the same time it can run on windows desktops as a browser . your calendar, pictures , email , maps. word speed shets and more ... all in the same place . fire up the "google xp browser" and you are right where you left off last logon no matter where in the world or on what thing you were on . the ultimate thin client ,, for now

  16. syntax? i'll have to look it up but isn't it : gcc proto.for -o proto.exe I compile C++ programs for windows using g++ code.cxx -o program.exe code.cxx being my code file
  17. you can confirm if webmin is running by typing as a regular user in a console " ps aux | grep webmin " you want to see atleast two lines with webmin one line like this 13915 0.0 0.1 2028 648 pts/1 S+ 06:48 0:00 grep webmin is not enough
  18. webmin might be helpful for configuring samba the most confusing thing about samba is understanding that samba users and access for those samba users is different than the users on the PC . you need to add the users you want to have samba access to the samba confiig . webmin makes that easy by converting users on the system into samba users . another catch is the password for the each samba user so after you convert the system users into samba users be sure and set the password for each user to match the password used by the system sorry i mis-informed you on starting webmin it's /etc/rc.d/init.d/webmin start or /etc/rc.d/init.d/webmin stop as root
  19. port 10000 needs to be opened try this in a terminal shell telnet localhost 10000 if you get [xyz@localhost ~]$ telnet localhost 10000 Trying telnet: connect to address Connection refused telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused this means port 10000 is closed or webmin is not started or both . most likely its the port open the port via the mandriva control center aka mcc under security/firewall either open "everything" ( not recommended ) or add the port 10000/tcp under advanced / other ports ssh port has zero to do with webmin restarting the pc will start webmin if webmin is configured to start @ boot however su to root and typing "/etc/rc.d/init.d/webmin start" will fire it up also if webmin is not configured to use ssl and you enter https:// you'll spin wheels try both http:// and https:// if webmin is configured to use ssl and you type http:// you'll get an error telling you to use https://

  23. i would ask "why hasn't mandrake/mandriva been present at linuxworld usa?" no sign of mandriva @ the last linux world in boston feb 05 and there was no sign of mandriva at last years event in NY jan 04 . also " are you planning on attending the next linux world event in boston 2006?". you might also ask if it's true that there is no word that translates to " marketing " in french
