SMTP Auth problems in Debian Etch w/ISPConfig

September 22Hits:2

Hi guys,

Maybe somebody could help me out with this issue.
I followed the Perfect setup for Debian 3.1 (sarge) for my Debian 4.0 (Etch) Install. I then proceeded to install ISPConfig. Everything works perfect except authetication through smtp. I can send emails using the webmail, but if i try to send mail through my smtp server from somewhere else, authentication fails.
The only problem that i have seen besides the smtp is this:

Here is the error i get when i try to authenticate smtp:
Thank you in advance for your help,

Which errors do you get in your mail log? If you want to use TLS, enable TLS in the file /etc/postfix/master.cf.
looks like sasl is having an issue. I tried several things and nothing worked. I also tried changing the path of smtpd_sasl_domain. That didnt work. Also theres a cert issue, i dont know why i would be getting that. I followed the how to to the T. Any thoughts? Heres the output of /var/log/mail.log

Do you get an error when you start the saslauthd server?
nope. No errors, and when i ps aux shows five processes of sasl running.

here's the exerpt of my /etc/postfix/main.cf:

What's the output of

Code:

ps aux|grep saslauthd

?
What's in /etc/default/saslauthd and /etc/init.d/saslauthd?
ps aux | grep saslauthd:

/etc/default/saslauthd:

/etc/init.d/saslauthd:

So by reading this, is it safe for me to assume that I can follow the Sarge How-To for Etch? Are the packages recommended for Sarge the same as those recommended for Etch?

I want to re-install, but don't want to put Sarge back on this machine (since it won't be supported for much longer)...but i don't want to have to wait for Etch to become "stable".

Thanks.
Most packages are the same, but not all. Also some of the config files have been changed. ISPConfig works generally well on Etch, butthe perefct setup instructions are not 100% the same for etch, we will release a new howto when etch is released. If you have some linux knowledge, you should be able to use the sarge howto with etch too.
Like i said, the only problem s i had in following the sarge how to with ispconfig is only with SMTP auth. I am still not able to authenticate. Still trying to fix this problem myslef but no luck yet. Im not very familiar with saslauthd
You should have taken a look at the original /etc/default/saslauthd file because it has some examples in it. PARAMS has changed to OPTIONS on Etch, so please replace

Code:

PARAMS="-m /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd -r"

with

Code:

OPTIONS="-m /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd -r -c"

in /etc/default/saslauthd and restart saslauthd.
That was it!

Thank you falko.

Everything works smoothly now. So far thats the only major difference between the Sarge and Etch installs that i have noticed.

You are great.
