I was thinking about using that very patch, just haven't gotten around to trying it out. So, if you are gunna try this out, do not use a live system for testing. As per the instructions included within the patch: +How to install it: + +Simply patch your qmail-1.03 distribution with the included patch +file and recompile & install like usual. + +The steps to do this are as follows (assuming your virgin +qmail-1.03 install is in "../qmail-1.03"): + + cp README.auth base64.c base64.h ../qmail-1.03 + patch -d ../qmail-1.03 < auth.patch + +Install qmail normally, with the exception of the new arguments +to qmail-smtpd described elsewhere in this file. + +Also obtain, unpack, compile and install the cmd5checkpw utility +(or some other checkpassword utility) and add a sample account to +/etc/poppasswd file. This file must be readable by the qmail-smtpd +user, usually qmaild. So, I am guessing that means you do this: #cd /usr/ports/mail/qmail #make patch #cd work/qmail-1.03 #fetch http://students.imsa.edu/~ngroot/qmail-1.03-starttls-smtp-auth.patch #patch -d ../qmail-1.03 < qmail-1.03-starttls-smtp-auth.patch #cd /usr/ports/mail/qmail (make sure qmail is not running) #make install After that you will need to modify /var/qmail/rc to accommodate the qmail-smtpd startup changes. Please let us (or atleast me) know how it works. I am interested in doing this as well as soon as I have some free time. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
