Like many documents, it's both good and bad. The author gives an excellent (and complete) description of setuid/gid, permissions, and flags ... but then he goes on to arbitrarily announce that you should increase both send and receive TCP buffers to 64k, with no explanation. Jacking these values up is not always a good idea, and I doubt if it's a good idea with a mail server. -- Bill Moran Potential Technologies http://www.potentialtech.com _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
