Re: Fwd: OpenSMTPD in NetBSD


I had been working on OpenSMTPd 6.7.1 too awhile ago. I got smtpd it working by setting
CONFIGURE_ARGS+= ac_cv_func_strtonum=no
i.e. strtonum() works differently on NetBSD and OpenBSD.

Does that help?

To make it clear: I have tested the build on NetBSD 9.0 and I have
also actually RUNNING it on SmartOS (it will need a SMF manifest to
be complete).

On NetBSD I’ve run into similar problem that also you’ve run

I’ll look for the problems on NetBSD.

I had a chance to play with OpenSMTPD this week.  A couple of points:

1.  The smtpctl binary must be run setgid _smtpq

2.  In order to get ‘smtpctl encrypt’ functionality, the source
must be patched:

+++ smtpd/smtpctl.c
@@ -966,7 +966,7 @@ do_encrypt(int argc, struct parameter *a

       if (argv)
               p = argv[0].u.u_str;
-       execl(PATH_ENCRYPT, "encrypt", "--", p, (char *)NULL);
+       execl(PATH_ENCRYPT, "encrypt", p, (char *)NULL);
       errx(1, "execl");

This was patched in master back in February but didn’t make it into
the portable code.

3.  And lastly…I can’t get smtpd to run!  I mean it starts up and
runs but I can’t get it to send mail.  It silently dies when I try
to send anything.  Using ‘swaks’ to generate a test email from the
command line I get:

This silently kills smtpd — no error message, no core file.
