Basically what I did was to use an opensource program called smtp-client.pl writen in perl that permits you to send mail directly. In order for this to work, we need to replace failoverd with the modified version and place smtp-client.pl on /root/kerbynet.cgi/scripts/ (this is done on boot time via the rc.pre script) After that, if we have in our profile a file called kerbynet-local.conf (_DB.001/etc/kerbynet-local.conf) With the content: MAIL_HOST=ip_address_of_outgoing_server MAIL_RCPTemail@example.com MAIL_FROMfirstname.lastname@example.org MAIL_USER=username MAIL_PASS=password I’ve tested and it works really fine, and the modifications are done on a way that it doesn’t disturb if you don’t have the smpt-client available. Simplified instruccions to install in the repository You can find the modifications on http://bitbucket.org/aseques/zeroshell-documentation July 8, 2009 at 9:28 pm #48384 imported_fulvioParticipant Very nice solution. Thanks a lot Fulvio July 9, 2009 at 8:04 am #48385 asequesMember I’d be glad if you could integrate this at the next release, no problem with the licenses, since the changes are on the scripts, it’d be already GPL An the smtp-client is also GPL2.

If not, can some instructions be created and posted? I am also not finding the opensource program smtp-client.pl.
