Sendmail on trusted server


Sendmail on trusted server

Hi again,

As I said i'm begin in hpux. I will get the manuals

With a normal server i did users with 8 word or more (ex:ssarmien to ssarmiento).

In trusted server is the same?

How i do it ?

what happen with the password if the user will use pop3 ?

What steps i wil do to have a server with security ?

Is there inconvenient ?

Re: Sendmail on trusted server

Hi there.

When you convert to TCB, the limit of 8 characters on username length remains the same.

To convert, just rum pwconv from a root login, you can also do this from SAM, but I prefer the Command Line alternative.

You shouldn't see any problems with POP3 AFAIK.

The conversion is simple, converting back is not so simple and you should really use SAm to do so. You can dot from a command line but the option is not supported by HP.

Drawbacks, very few - just make sure you don't get your root password wrong more than 3 times.

-> this should work just fine. On the POP3 server I've tested (various versions of Qpopper), you can't use the same binary on trusted and untrusted - you have to add link libraries for trusted (-lsec). The build flags for trusted systems are fairly well spelled out in the INSTALL/README documents.
