New How-To

Posted April 5th, 2004 in Linux, News by Tobias

New Article added.

I’ve just finished a new article in the Technical section on installing Postfix MTA with Amavis, ClamAv, and Spamassassin. Although it is specificly written for Debian Linux users, many of the concepts are the same on other Linux distros. It also covers setting up SMPT AUTH via TLS to authenticate users for mail relay.

See it here:
How To Install Postfix, Amavis, ClamAV, and Spamassassin

MyContacts Now With Sessions

Posted March 22nd, 2004 in News by Tobias

Download MyContacts

MyContacts now supports session based authentication/access. I don’t really like using Apache for access so I added the option to use session based access in the config.php file. Besides adding some new features like sessions, it also includes utilities for adding/editing/deleting users and some minor bugfixes.

Powered By Debian

Now Powered by Debian!

Well the Debian install went just fine, and everyting seems to be running just great. Expect more how-to’s! Since I switched from Sendmail to Postfix, I’ll be outlining how I did it HERE.
I also installed Debian on Software RAID as I outlined in the how-to HERE.

If you happen to find any bugs please contact me.

Not Powered By Redhat

Posted February 5th, 2004 in Linux, News by Tobias

Not Powered By RedHat

Well RedHat is pulling a Microsoft and eol’d it’s bread and butter distro in favor of charging people money. They say to use Fedora if you want free software (the point of Linux, right?), but why be a beta tester for the software that you’ll have to pay for? Most people I know are jumping ship and heading for a new distro. What about you?

MyContacts Ready For Download

Posted November 2nd, 2003 in News by Tobias

Download MyContacts

Needing a contact manager that was accessable anywhere, without all of the extra junk, I opted to write my own, MyContacts. I thought it might be handy for others so I’m releasing it under the GNU General Public License (w00t! open source!)

Check Out Clam Antivirus

Posted November 2nd, 2003 in Linux, News by Tobias

Open AntiVirus:

I received a reply this morning from a posting on one of Security Focus‘ mailing lists from Tomasz Papszun, a guy working on Clam AntiVirus.
Clam AntiVirus is an anti-virus toolkit for UNIX. The main purpose of this software is the integration with mail servers (attachment scanning). The package provides a flexible and scalable multi-threaded daemon, a command line scanner, and a tool for automatic updating via Internet. The programs are based on a shared library distributed with the Clam AntiVirus package, which you can use with your own software. The virus database is based on the virus database from OpenAntiVirus, but contains additional signatures (including signatures for popular polymorphic viruses, too) and is KEPT UP TO DATE.

This is one of the best projects I’ve seen in a while, so check ’em out by visiting their page, http://clamav.sourceforge.net.
