[HOWTO] Enable Integration of Malware Patrol in efa 3.0.0.9

ok, I have it working, and I fixed a minor problem with the ClamAV installation. First, the minor problem /etc/clamd.conf has the database directory set to: DatabaseDirectory /var/lib/clamav /usr/local/etc/clamav-unofficial-sigs.conf has it set to: clam_dbs="/var/clamav" Change the latter to match t...

Re: [FR] Integration of Malware Patrol

[edit: warning - stream of consciousness posting] If you subscribe to the free version, you'll get access to to the block lists. They provide preconfigured files for: - ClamAV - Postfix MTA - SpamAssassin (there are other files for other programs, but these are the three relevant to efa) They also p...

Re: Tuning filters

Charlie, Two things: 1/ There are a couple (few? 1? many?) of DNS block lists that Spam Assassin checks. If you use your ISPs DNS server, chances are, that IP will have gone over quota for free usage. IF you setup your own internal Caching DNS nameserver for use by EFA, you'll probably get faster re...

Re: Next Major release OS version

This is why I tend to use centos everytime i would like to have something that basically should left untouched.
That's why I have used Centos in the past.

When I want better package support, I'll use the Ubuntu LTS versions.

Re: Next Major release OS version

yeah, I really hate where systemd is going. It's turning the maintenance of OS system services into a pile of shit. (my opinion).

That aside, the biggest concern should be the packages that make up EFA and which ones are best supported under the OS of choice.

Re: Web interface username & password

yeah, until you get the commands typed in properly, it's hard to go forward.

use the commands as I've written them. It'll take a few more steps, but there are fewer changes to make a mistake.

Do this first cat /etc/EFA-Config |grep SQL|grep MAILWATCHSQLPWD You should get one line back that looks like this: MAILWATCHSQLPWD:XXX...XXX where XXX...XXX is your mysql password. If you do, type in mysql -umailwatch -pXXX...XXX mailscanner it will succeed or fail. if it fails, do this cat /etc/EF...

Re: Improving my EFA Performance

Nope, already using the virtio drivers and have the scheduler set. That's not it.

Also, you're better off using the deadline scheduler on the host, and the noop scheduler in the vm.

Re: Improving my EFA Performance

Yeah, it seems to be an issue in KVM that's been known about for years. It's fine if the disk io is not to high, but when it does get high, the vm bogs down. Here are the results from the efa vm itself [itsupport@efa tmp]$ dd if=/dev/zero of=1000MB.bin bs=1M count=1024 1024+0 records in 1024+0 recor...

eh, I was tired and perhaps not thinking clearly.

Re: Report this message as spam fails to connect to EFA

No, that's not it. You'll probably have to define ServerName and ServerAlias in your /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf to allow apache to accept multiple host names. That'll mean setting up an Apache Virtual host to accept the second domain name. http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/core.html#serveralias E...

can you access http://hostname.externaldomain.net/ from an external address/location? do you see the same page as when you access http://hostname.internaldomain.local/ ?
