Work in Progress

Category : Commentary/wip.txt

For DNS Enabler, I'm going to include the ability to set up a secondary (slave) DNS Server.

I was going to add to DNS Enabler the ability to notify slave name servers (when something changed on the master server) when I realised that BIND 9 (that OS X uses) does that automatically. So the time would be better spent doing something that sets up those secondary name servers themselves.

For Postfix Enabler, I'm going to do these : mail queue management, RBL sites (though I hate it when they block mail from dynamically assigned IP addresses so I won't suggest those that do), SMTP authentication over SSL between mail servers, enforce SSL for SMTP authentication, alternate port numbers to contact the mail server, default mynetworks_style to "host" (i.e., allow mail to be relayed only if it originated from the server or if it has been smtp-authenticated) and let the user choose to relax that restriction to include mail from any machine on the same subnet, and also support for Fetchmail.

PFE works in Bangalore

Category : Commentary/bangalore.txt

I got this mail from Tom Gilb. "Thank you it works right away here in bangalore at Sheraton hotel and they could not figure out how to get my mail out after 3 days!"

It feels good to get stuff like that.

Bangalore. I'd like to go where all those Postfix Enabler bits are going. One day soon, when the kid's able to take all the walking, we'll get on the road again.
