MariaDB - covert MyISAM engine to InnoDB

Due to some difficulties with my current used eFa box I had to recover corrupt databases. (What has happend is not clear to me as my VM was always properly shutdown (?), but it was claimed in the log that some logs were in the future...) That said Iam now looking closer into this part of eFa and hav...

Re: Limit login to localhost

... Modern mail servers prefer encrypted connections. Old mail servers are happy to use unencrypted. Many ISPs block port 25 traffic, but allow 587. A mail server should allow both. I would disagree here again. Port 25 could not be blocked in any case as all standard mailservers will contact this p...

Re: Limit login to localhost

Port 587 is necessary for anonymous encryption between mailservers. Port 25 traffic is usually unencrypted. It is good to have port 587 for mailservers that want to encrypt the connection, otherwise 3rd parties can read the email traffic as it travel between mailservers. [/quote] This is not correc...

Re: Limit login to localhost

Our eFa box sends all ougoing traffic not directly to the reciepent mta. We use a relay server were we authenticate over port 587. :D

Re: Limit login to localhost

I'm thinking like conventional mail server, Postfix SMTP server uses Dovecot SASL, and this Dovecot SASL Authentication to authenticate/validate POP/IMAP clients. CMIIW is that because the op open port dovecot to the outside on his Efa Box, that is why he saw authentication failure report? Instead ...

Re: Limit login to localhost

dovecot is just acting as the authenticator. That was my point were I was struggeling a bit. As I use the eFa box only as the external gateway it was not clear to me why dovecot with POP3 and IMAP capability is here involved. Now I know it :-) And yes, the solution is fail2ban which I am using too....

Limit login to localhost

My eFa box is only used as an e-mail gateway, so no user is login at all, except myself via ssh or https. In /var/log/secure I see many external login attempts.

The greylisting could be more comfortable to manage, i.e. selecting entries by wildcards.

If someone tries to use sophosavi instead of sophos av he would run in this problem again.
