I've been trying to enable SMTP auth using vchkpw with qmail today. The
login works fine, but after i issue the "rcpt to" command over telnet, I
get the "421 unable to read controls (#4.3.0)" error. Google told me it'
s a permissions problem, but the permissions on the /var/qmail/control
directory (it's actually a symlink to /etc/qmail) are:
When I telnet it looks like this:
Connected to domain.tld.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 domain.tld ESMTP
235 ok, [EMAIL PROTECTED], go ahead (#2.0.0)
mail from:<[EMAIL PROTECTED]>
rcpt to:<[EMAIL PROTECTED]>
421 unable to read controls (#4.3.0)
Connection closed by foreign host.
If my memory serves me correctly, one of the older auth patches
incorrectly closes the FD 3 socket.
Which patch are you trying to use ?
FYI - Bill Shupp's complete patch is the easiest to use IMHO, you can
get it at www.shupp.org
